Comment:
Withdrawal symptoms include unrelenting nausea, periods of rapid electric impulses shooting back and forth across the brain, uncontrollable limb movements, neuropathy, and terrible headaches. I experienced none of these symptoms prior to taking Cymbalta. I am angry that no one, no one warned me about the after-effects of this drug.

Comment:
Prescribed for major recurrent depression and anxiety Hasn't completely prevented episodes, but I don't believe anything can except long-term psychotherapy. LOVE that I can take it on an empty stomach, also no side effects they disappear after taking meds for a long time) DISTURBED by head rushes and strange sleep/dreams if I forget to take it

Cymbalta is ok but very expensive. I am going back to Paxil which, for me, is better. Be careful of liver toxcity on Cymbalta; have your physician do regular blood tests on liver function.

Comment:
I was terribly depressed because of my medical problems, and the pain they caused. I'm bi-polar, diabetic neuroapathy, and have renal failure just to name a few. I was hateful, mean, didn't want to live, do anything or go anywhere. Didn't even want to play with my dog! I became a reclouse. Thank God for Cymbalta!! It changed everything for me and my dog is very happy again. We play. My ... Show Full Comment
