Cymbalta Somnolence Reviews

Wed, 17 Apr 2013

took Cymbalta for 3-4 months, began having severe abdominal pains, nausea, weight gain,flu like symptoms, and a rash. Finally demanded to go off the meds. Since then, I know how gallbladder issues, possibly kidney stones, uterine fibroids, and remain sick on a daily basis. Test after test have remained inconclusive. Night sweats continue, my thyroid has been irratic, and I would never take this medication again.

Tue, 13 Mar 2012

started taking Cymbalta in 30mg. after one week took the 60mg. After 1 hour my whole body started shaking and I thought I was going to pass out. I ate like 3 cookies and a candy bar and it stopped! I am not going to take it again......scarry!

Tue, 27 Mar 2012

I've been taking Cymbalta 60 for depression plus other medications for seizures, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, migraine heachaches, arthritis and so, so.
Out of tiredness of taking too many medications, I took it on my own to end taking some of them.  One of them Cymbalta.  After a few days, I started experiencing what I can only describe as electrical charges or sparks feeling in my head or brain followed by exsesive dizziness.  Hard to describe.  If there is any knowledge of these symtoms out there, please post with whatever information is valuable for persons like me who decide to stop taking some of the medications that have been taken for a long time.  I'm also tired of seeing doctors.

I was on Cymbalta for 3 months. I couldn't sleep at night and was constantly overheated and sweating. It worsened my depression and i gained 8 pounds even though the doctor insisted it wasn't the medication. The doctor wouldn't take me off of Cymbalta so I switched doctors. The new doctor ordered a blood workup and found I had elevated ALT and AST and that I was dehydrated! Since going off of the medication I sleep like a baby and no longer have the unbearable sweating! I have also lost the 8 pounds I had gained.

Mon, 21 Nov 2011

This is the first time I've ever posted to anything like this but after my experience with Cymbalta I only want others to be aware.

I started taking Cymbalta in Aug 2011 for chronic back pain. Luckily my doctor knew it would probably make me sick so he started me on 30 MG a day for 7 days and then increased it to 60 MG from there. Needless to say, it made me very sick on the stomach. I lost a few pounds (which wasn't a bad thing :) but I was so, so sick! I also was very shaky. My hands shook constantly. I'm in sales and even my clients noticed it. Being 45 and a mother of two I'm forgetful as is but I found myself not being able to complete a sentence which at first I contributed to age and stress. Then came the insomnia. I found myself wide awake for 3 nights in a row until I finally crashed on the sofa. I put up with that for a few weeks until I finally called the doctor. Guess what? They gave me something to help me sleep. Insult to injury! Then came the severe night sweats. I thought it was hormonal but when I would describe my symptonms my story sounded a little different from my friends who were having night sweats. I also feel my eyesight has gotten worse. I then started having diarrhea..severe. I finally went to my PCP thinking all this was unrelated to the Cymbalta. My doc ran blood work and the only problem I had was high liver enzymes. My AST was 153 and my ALT was 502. Needless to say, I was worried at this point. I also had an ultrasound of my liver. So far, the only negative report is my liver enzymes. I started seeing an ayurvedic doctor at the advise of a good friend. He told me my liver was basically toxic from medication. I called my doc the next day and said I wanted off the medicine ASAP. My pain doctor cut me down to 30MG and tomorrow is my last pill.

The good news was, this medicine took away all my pain and that was wonderful. The bad news is, if I continue it, who knows what would have happened. Hopefully I'll have my numbers checked again and they'll continue to come down.
