Cymbalta® (duloxetine HCl) is not for everyone. You
should not take Cymbalta if you have recently taken
a type of antidepressant called an MAOI or Mellaril®
(thioridazine) or have uncontrolled glaucoma
(increased eye pressure).
Talk to your doctor about all your medical conditions,
including kidney or liver problems, glaucoma, diabetes,
seizures, or if you have bipolar disorder. Cymbalta
may worsen a type of glaucoma or diabetes. Severe
liver problems, sometimes fatal, have been reported
so talk to your doctor if you have itching, right upper
belly pain, dark urine, yellow skin/eyes or unexplained
flu-like symptoms while taking Cymbalta. Tell your
doctor about your alcohol use and discuss all your
medicines, including those for migraine to address
a potentially life-threatening condition. Symptoms
may include high fever, confusion, and stiff muscles.
Discuss if you are taking NSAID pain relievers, aspirin
or blood thinners because use with Cymbalta may
increase bleeding risk. Consult your doctor before
stopping Cymbalta or changing your dose. Dizziness
or fainting may occur upon standing. Cymbalta can
increase your blood pressure. Your healthcare provider
should check your blood pressure prior to and while
taking Cymbalta. Tell your doctor if you experience
headache, weakness, confusion, problems
concentrating, memory problems, or feel unsteady
while taking Cymbalta which may be signs of low
sodium levels. Tell your doctor if you develop problems
with urine flow while taking Cymbalta and if you are
pregnant or nursing.
The most common side effects of Cymbalta include
nausea, dry mouth, constipation, decreased appetite
and sleepiness. This is not a complete list of side
effects. Cymbalta may cause sleepiness and dizziness.
Until you know how Cymbalta affects you, you should
not drive a car or operate hazardous machinery.
