Hi ;-) Cymbalta did not work for me as regards to dealing with pain. On the contrary, it seriously worsened my insomnia problems, making it even more difficult to cope with the pain.
But everybody is different, what works for 1 person might not work for somebody else and viceversa

I've been on Cymbalta for almost 4 months now, and am at full dose (120 mg. per day). I believe it has helped my depression, but can't say that it has helped the pain I experience from fibromyalgia. I haven't experienced any side effects that I know of.

I just started taking it 1 week ago, and today I start the full dose... I'll keep you posted. So far I have noticed a decrease in pain, and my mood has improved. A co-worker's wife has fibro too and he reports to me that she has really had positive results on cymbalta and has been on it for a long time - swears by it.

I haven't had any nausea so far, which my doc warned me about, but he said the 90% of folks who get that the first little while get over it quickly.

The jury is still out for me, but so far, so good... Oh, and since I started it 1 week ago, I'm down 4. 2 pounds, so it doesn't seem to be inhibiting my weight loss - at least right now.

I am on it.... have been for about 9 months now. I was nauseous 24/7 for the first couple of months, but that is gone now. It helps some with the pain, but they had to also put me on Neurontin because it wasn't enough.

My doctor wants me to take Cymbalta. Has anyone taken it? Still on it? Anything good or bad to report? Thanks for any information.
