Reply To: Cymbalta

Just wanted to chime in here for those who haven’t tried Cymbalta yet and who may be considering it. I had the most frightening and horrid time with this drug and it’s side effects. It seemed to work great for the first week or two, and then all hell broke loose. I really, really thought I was going to be hospitalized -probably should have been. It seems there are a lot of post-release side effects being reported from this drug that didn’t come up in their clinical trials. I won’t go into details with what happened to me, but here’s a link to another site where many people seem to have had similar frightening effects.


Please note, I am not saying don’t take the Cymbalta. My sister is in fact on it and has no problems. And obviously it’s helping some of the people on this board. But please research it carefully before you just pop it in your mouth based on your Docs recommendation. I went through pure hell with it.
