Cymbalta Adrenal Insufficiency

I have been on Cymbalta for 7 yrs. For the last 4 yrs I've been on 120mg per day. I have dealt with many, many side effects, however it helped me so much I put up with them. But the last two years I started having severe heart palpitations and extreme bouts of fatigue. I had many cardiac test and was eventually diagnosed with a heart arythemia. And now last month I was diagnosed with adrenal insufficiency with my cortisol levels dangerously low. My FP doctor referred me to a Endocrinologist, but before I could get there I was hospitalized 4 days with pneumonia. Extreme Adrenal insufficiency causes fluid to build in your lungs. Coincidence? I don't know? Has anyone else on Cymbalta had symptoms of Adrenal fatigue? Has anyone else been on Cymbalta for 7-8 yrs? ## Actually, many me...

pain management doctors who will prescribe medications around Richmond or Mechanicsville or Ashland VA

I have Sciatica, Spondeliosis, Degenerative Disc Disease and Fibromyalgia in both my hips & legs, I have had 3 sets of nerve blocker injections that did not help. I had a herniated disc, in my lower back, (scar tissue has entrapped nerve in it), intractable back pain, I have been falling a lot at home or if I am out somewhere. I get very confused and short term memory is really getting bad which is a symptom of Fibromyalgia, I don't want to go anywhere, I rarely see my friends. I feel like my feet and legs are running and my body is not catching up. I have also last year had left shoulder surgery for small tear in rotator cuff, bone spurs leaning on rotator cuff, osteoarthritis and fluid around the arthritis, 1 month after this surgery: I have what feels like electricity shocks ...

cymbalta and tremors

Has anyone else experienced tremors while taking C? I look like I've got the DT's right after I get a dose. Also, sweats and not being able to sleep - hope they are temorary side effects. On 90mg for three weeks now. Thanks! ## Can 30 mg of Cymbalta make your fingers and hands shake? ## I took Lexapro for 5 years with good results, but I was switched to Cymbalta 6 weeks ago to hopefully reduce my pain from arthritis. I've had several side effects which are getting worse and I am now going to stop the Cymbalta. I've had restless leg syndrome, fatigue, nausea, weakness, sense of irregular pr fast heartbeat, but the worst are a couple of intense "hot" flashes which included all of the above. Terrible! Seriously, I was frightened at the severity, and I have never had...

Cymbalta Experiences

I am looking for someone who has been on this medication for a while. I would like to know how fast it works and if there were any side effects with nausea at first? ## I had nausea in the begining but it ceased after a while. Had some problems with constipation too. I have always been baffled why someone with anxiety problems such as myself is put on an antidepresent. I felt really tired all the time. There were a few times when I would fall asleep at my desk at work or almost fall asleep driving in the car coming home from work. Sometimes I felt like I had no desires to do things just from being so tired. I have recently gone off of it and I have had some strange things happening. I have been getting some weird shocking feeling in my head and body. it's very strange. ## prescribed...

Cymbalta

I've been taking Cymbalta for 9 months. I'm experienciencing muscle pain in my arms a lot of sweating. Is this normal? Please advise. Thank You. ## Sweating can be a side effect of .Cymbalta. Try going down from 60 mg to 30 . Then, after about a month, if the sweating is worse than the benefits, taper off cymbalta, and try something else. ## I have had the sweating problem, but it's been when I missed or took it late. I wake up with my legs sweating. Yuck! ## No one but you and your doctor can say whether or not you should change your dosage, or try a different medication. The FDA does list both the sweating, and muscle pain as being possible side effects, along with nausea, dizziness, headache, weight changes, dry mouth, and mood changes. However, as females, there are othe...

Cymbalta Withdrawal Hell

I have been on 30mg of the generic brand of Cymbalta, duloxetine for just about a year. I realized 10 days ago I was going to need a refill. I failed to realize that my next refill needed the doc's approval. I have yet to receive a response, as has the pharmacy. Long story short, this is day 6 of Cymbalta withdrawal hell. I am experiencing brain zaps, anytime I move my upper body I hear a whooshing sound in my head, and my body feels electric. It's not pleasant. Finding the words I want to speak is a challenge, making the words come out without stuttering or stumbling over them even more so. Nausea and vomiting hit me today. I am so lethargic and tired but I can't sleep. Tgis is terribe that this is allowed and PUSHED onto people. ## I assume you've called your doctor, r...

Cymbalta 60 Side Effects

I have been taking Cymbalta for 6 yrs. along with Wellbutrin(150mg.) could it cause sores in my mouth? could it cause my hands to shake once in a while? ## Hi Mary, One of the side effects of Cymbalta (Duloxetine) is an "uncontrollable shaking of a part of the body". It can also cause blisters or peeling skin, rashes, hives, swelling in the face, and unfortunately, much more than this. The link below lists the vast majority of possible side effects, but I would highly recommend talking to your doctor about switching medications or opting for a natural alternative to this prescription if the side effects are too persistent or severe: I hope this info helps! ## I have been taking Cymbalta for many years,and I see that I have many of the symptoms. What I fear is that the effect th...

Expired Cymbalta

Just prescribed Cymbalta again. Mine just expired 02-2016. Is it still safe for me to take it? It's not opened and it was stored in a dark dry cupboard. ## Hello, Janet! How are you? Medications do not become dangerous, once expired, but they can lose efficacy, so it may not work as well as it did, when it was new. Thus, it would be best to dispose of it and obtain a new supply. The U.S. FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and weight changes. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I took Cymbalta that was expired and was EXTREMELY DIZZY and couldn't focus. ## I have a bottle of Cymbalta from 2016. Is it still good to take? How long can you keep Cymbalta before it expires? Thank you.

Can Cymbalta Cause Curly Hair

I've always had poker straight hair my entire life. As a little girl, my mom would try and put curls in my hair on picture day and by the time got to school, hair was totally straight again! I'm 44 & have been taking Cymbalta 60mg x 3 years. My hair started with kind of a "beachy" wave where today it looks like I've had a perm. All along I've thought this was hormonal changes but this curl seems consistent with the time I started taking Cymbalta. I'm just curious-I find it incredibly strange that medication can do this to your hair!! I've asked my psychiatrist and my OB/GYN about it. Psych said he doubts it & OB/GYN said she wasn't aware of meds that can curl your hair like this. Wondered if others on Cymbalta have found the same thing happen,...
