Re: Deborah (# 5)

You are soo right, WHO IS RESPOSIBLE FOR ALL WE SUFFER FROM MEDS, ALSO WHY DO THE DOCTORS ALWAYS SAY. NO,NO ITS NOT THE MED DOING IT. YOU HAVE TO RESEARCH AND RESEARCH YOURSELF TO FIND YOUR OWN ANSWERS THESE DAYS. Get off of it. My bowels shut down from it, and my friend got liver disease from it. It almost killed my cousin.

Be careful what you take with it. I had already had been taking strong pain meds with it and they had to increase the dose. Then serotonin syndrome set in. After two ER trips they took me off 60 mg a day and gave me some other meds to get me through withdrawals. I could not be still and when he tested my reflexes in the knee I almost jumped off the table.

The I had high temps for a week and after another Er trip landed in the hospital.

I have been on cymbalta for about 2 months now. I have had so many strange weird things going on with my body. From a severe case of dry mouth, sores in my mouth, severe teeth clenching, unusual breakouts on my face, to constant itching all over my body. The skin on my face has also turned a weird color. I have constipation, dark weird smelling urine. I also noticed my mood is starting to be all over the place. The worst part of all, is that my issue with constant pain, hasn't improved at all. My face, hands, ankles are all puffy, and I don't look like myself right now. I'm having issues with sleeping, and I noticed my eye lids are twitching. I have to also include the fact that I dont ever remember having any type of reaction to any other meds I've taken in my life. I now look and feel worse than ever. The Drs response to all of this? He basically made it seem like this was all pretty much in my head, and told me to continue taking the cymbalta.

I was also on lyrica, but I decided to stop taking it to try and see which meds were causing all these symptoms. Now I'm worried about the side effects I will have getting off the cymbal ta. This same Dr refused to give me any type of pain meds, because he's worried about the "addiction" crisis going on. The sad thing about this is, is that those who have a major addiction issue, buy them illegally off the street. Somehow patients who do need them can't get them, because of the dealers who are selling them. This whole thing has been like a nightmare for me. My advice to others, stay away from cymbalta!!!

I took Cymbalta for seven days. I woke up and couldn't urinate very much. I went to doctor the next day. I am in the lucky 1-2% of men who suffers the side effects of Cymbalta affecting my prostate and bladder. It has gotten progressively worse, I have a catheter 24/7, which has been changed out 3x already. I have been cystoscoped and found to have an inflamed bladder and enlarged prostate. I have to wait another three weeks for the urodynamics test to rule out other problems. I don't believe in coincidences. Cymbalta is the culprit and I am the victim.

Yes.... it can cause sores in your mouth which “ could “ possibly be thrush.
This drug worked WONDERS for my pain..... but about 8/9 months in my face had a horrific rash from this medicine ( the insert does state it as one of the side effects ) I have been off for about 2 &1/2 months and my face is still a disgusting looking mess !!! I hated to have to stop taking it because it seemed to work so well, but my husband brought me to my pshycologist in the end...... because I became mentally manic, didn’t sleep, face was falling apart, I was making some really “not myself” decisions, and more that I don’t even remember. If you tolerate this med. then it can be a miracle , but you have to watch yourself AND symptoms on your body VERY closely .. the minute something doesn’t feel right.....go, RUN, to your doctor so it doesn’t progress out of control !! Hope this helps..... but most definetly causes sores on body, face, thrush in the mouth.....

Has anyone else had severe as abdominal pain with duloxotine? I am on 120mg for 3 months and have been hospital three times with severe abdominal pain. The Hospital keeps sending me home with stronger morphine as they do not know what's wrong with me. The morphine doesn't help. The hospital did a lot of tests, ct scans, ect, then gave up.

Dear Bubbles, I cried the day I had to stop taking my Cymbalta..... but, sadly it caused these very firm acne like places on my face. I was on 30mg. And switched right back to Lexapro no problems of withdrawal (for anyone wondering) . Great for my pain.... but not good for my skin, still in the process of getting skin better, the day I stopped though....it started to improve Shame, because I actually hung my cane up for a while. Hope this helps anyone that needed some info. Also, I thought it might be my Adderral, but no...... Cymbalta was the culprit.

Good for you! I agree wholeheartedly, they would rather see you feel like an i**** and keep on harming yourself with these worse than street drug prescriptions rather than admitting any wrongdoing and negligence or to do anything that may jeopardize their kickback or the legal drug pusher's (pfizer, astro zeneca, johnson & johnson, etc...) kickback. These bastards will eventually get what they deserve. My doc actually played the blisters off as "ok well try something else" as if to say, oh this wacko is not liking this medicine either, until I lifted my pant leg and showed him the scars on my legs In which case he stood up with a face that I've never seen before and apologized profusely to me and said I am so sorry let's get you on something else right away.

I just started cymbalta, it has caused me to have rashes all over my butt!!! Also I feel really restless and clench my teeth all the time. For the people with migraines, neurotin saved my life from those monsterous things! Migraine free for 3 years now!

Rolf Says:

Hi I reduced my dose from 60 mg to nothing over a period of 18 months, However between the 60 mg and 30 mg dose I reduced it in thirds over at least 6 weeks. I did feel emotional and angry as I kept reducing it, I had no choice to do this as I developed a bad case of hives after 6 years of being on it. I have now been off it for 6 weeks and although I am still experiencing Cymbalta withdrawal, I'm emotionally a lot more stable, and my depression is so much better. The depression I had on the medication was terrible.

I have been put on Cymbalta 30mg for three weeks for migraines. The first two weeks, my blood pressure fell through floor and I kept passing out. Every joint in my body hurt, and I was so restless, I just sat there and cried. I called the doctor, because I refused to up my dose to 60. I was scared to death of the side effects. Now at three weeks, I have swollen glands in the back of my neck and my feet are bright red and itchy. I can't stand it. The benadryl doesn't even help. I left a message for the doc., but I am starting to think I will just cope with the migraines.... cause I can't take these side effects. I was straight out lied to. I asked both the doctor and the pharmacy about side effects, and they both told me not to worry, it was a better, newer drug with less side effects. An honest answer would have been nice. I wish I hadn't gone on this.

In the middle of reducing Cymbalta from 60mg to 30mg. Seem to be very emotional. Did you experience that. How long did it take you to get stable at 30mg?

So glad I found this page. I've been on cymbalta for almost a year for depression and fibromyalgia which I believe may even be my Hashimoto's thyroiditis as they have the same symptoms. I may have had it for many years...20 or more. I didn't know how to explain what the brain buzz was and I have it. I've been very upset about hair loss, but my thryroid levels are in the low normal range. I believe it's the Cymbalta. I also have hand and arm tremors. I may try to stop this med. I'm a bit afraid to. I only take 30mg because I'm sensitive to drugs, but a good side effect has been less pain and it stopped constant teariness. The horrible winter didn't seem so horrible to me and I'm usually very sad in the winter. Hearing that the brain buzz and tremors get better is amazing. In 25 years, the cymbalta for the last year has been the biggest help yet, but at what cost?? Do these symptoms disappear if you stop the med?
