Hello, PT! How are you doing? I'm sorry about the problem you've been experiencing.

Many people have good luck with Cymbalta for nerve pain, but not everyone. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and weight changes.

Can anyone that's taken it for nerve pain chime in with their experience?

I am thinking of weaning off Lirico and onto Cymbalta but I have precious little feedback as to people who have experience With this. I will likely wait until I get more input. Important that we all help each other. God bless.
