      I seemed to get dizzy when I take it. Is this a common side effect? I tried to talk to my doctor about it but they said it was normal so I just live in constant dizziness because I need something for my pain and this is the only thing they will prescribe me because they say it is the best thing for me.

      At first it worked well for nerve pain and mood. The. Had bladder problems from it. Took a long time to pee. Got worked up by urologist and he said just get off cymbalta.

      I tried it and it works really good for the fibromyalgia pain but it has some side affects I just couldn't deal with. It makes your eyes sensitive to light and live on the beach so that just didn't work for me. But if you are not outside alot I highly recommend it as it does help with the pain and the exhaustion! Good luck 🤞

      I recently tried Cymbalta and did not take well to it at all. I had only side effects and no benefits but it works different for everyone and I’m very sensitive to medications

      Cymbalta did nothing for me - so they switched me over to Savella and that really helped!

      It made mine much better! I was bed ridden before it!

        @Lake.Front.Lovely it seems to help a lot for me as well as the depression. I still get an occasional flare up but much better
