Cymbalta Headache Causes and Reviews


Almost everyone has had a Headache. Headache is the most common form of pain. It's a major reason people miss days at work or school or visit the doctor.

The most common type of Headache is a tension Headache. Tension Headaches are due to tight muscles in your shoulders, neck, scalp and jaw. They are often related to stress, depression or anxiety. You are more likely to get tension Headaches if you work too much, don't get enough sleep, miss meals, or use alcohol.

Other common types of Headaches include migraines, cluster Headaches, and sinus Headaches. Most people can feel much better by making lifestyle changes, learning ways to relax and taking pain relievers.

Not all Headaches require a doctor's attention. But sometimes Headaches warn of a more serious disorder. Let your health care provider know if you have sudden, severe Headaches. Get medical help right away if you have a Headache after a blow to your head, or if you have a Headache along with a stiff neck, fever, confusion, loss of consciousness, or pain in the eye or ear.

Cymbalta Headache Reviews

Tue, 16 Mar 2010
I started to have episodes of double vision a couple of years after starting taking Cymbalta. The episodes got progresively worse,to the point that they would be accompanied by a severe Headache. My doctor weaned me out of Cymbalta and switched me to Pristiq, but even during the weaning process the diplopia or double vision continued, minus the severe Headaches. I thought that a switch to Pristiq would eliminate the side effects, but it only added a new side effect: adult acne. Now I am off both Cymbalta and Pristiq, and have daily, mutiple episodes of double vision, and the acne seems to be wanting to come back (I had it under control with over the counter anti-acne products). The double vision comes with some pressure and pain above my eyes and on my nose. Is there any hope that the symptoms will go away???

Im 49, female. I starting taking Cymbalta six months ago. I felt some side of effects but, just thought the tiredness and sweating was part of working in the garden center. And working 2 jobs just burn out. So I quit one job because I became very agitated with mangement. This made me aware of the extreme sweating, nausea,the sentivity to the sun and the banging Headaches. The dry mouth increased my need for more water and changed the taste for food. When I would go places I would sweat so bad I would become dizzy and faint. i stooped taking my Cymbalta on Monday and Ive been house bounded since.
