I started taking Cymbalta a week ago. The first two days were great but starting the third day, I noticed left arm weakness for about two hours after taking my dose. I also noticed an increase in sex drive. I like the medicine overall.

My doctor then switched me to Cymbalta with the dose goin ... Show Full Comment
