    I had increased intraocular pressure before taking the drug at 24 mm pressure with no optic nerve damage and was being followed by a MD. After Cymbalta for approximately 3 weeks, I was seeing halos around lights with a pressure increase to 34 mm pressure to each each. Full blown glaucoma with optic nerve damage. I also had mood swings and said things that I did not mean to say. I almost lost some good friends. I stopped the medication and notified my MD. It did nothing for my pain also. Thank You for your time

    I was given this drug after being diagnosed with Dystonia that was cause by Reglan and promethazine. I was told that there is a high rate of suicide by Indviduals with Dystonia. I had a sever reaction to Cymbalta where my body was covered with boil like sores and now every joint, muscle, and tendon of my arms ,hips and legs are stiff, and in constant pain. I also have blurred vision.

    Was on 60mg of cymbalta for neuropathy pain. Almost killed me!! Read up on withdrawals, lawsuits, suicides and side effects. knowledge is power. Then show your dr. Bet they are surprised.

    There are better ways to treat pain. Not sure if messing around with my brain chemistry was such a good idea. I’m still shaking off the withdrawal effects and it’s been a few days. Also, it’s time release, so woe to you if you get diarrhea and flush the medicine out.

    This is often prescribed for pain but be warned that it is a psychoactive drug. An antidepressant. Anyone who has to pass an aviation, trucking (DOT) or merchant mariner physical needs to discuss alternatives with their doctors. These drugs are dangerous and will often disqualify you from your professional job. The side effects are real and too numerous to mention.
