Common Side Effects of Cymbalta
Before you start taking Cymbalta, let your doctor know about any allergies or medical conditions. Give your doctor a list of medicines you take, including any over-the-counter medicines and supplements. Also tell your doctor if you smoke, how much alcohol your drink, or if you use illegal drugs, as these may interact with Cymbalta.

Talk with your doctor before taking Cymbalta if you are pregnant, breast-feeding, or plan to become pregnant. Cymbalta may cause problems in newborns when mothers take it during the last few months of their pregnancies.

In some cases, Cymbalta may affect your judgment or make you feel drowsy or dizzy. Do not drive, use machinery, or do anything that needs mental alertness until you know how Cymbalta will affect you. Cymbalta may also cause high blood pressure. Ask your doctor how you should monitor your blood pressure.

Patients who take Cymbalta may experience serious side effects. Call your doctor right away (or call 911 if an emergency) if you start to have a change in mood or have any of the following symptoms that are new, worse, or worrying you:

  • Thoughts of suicide or suicidal behaviors
  • Depression
  • Sudden changes in emotions
  • Feeling anxious, agitated, or panicky
  • Feeling irritable, hostile, or aggressive
  • Being impulsive
  • Feeling severely restless, overly excited, or hyperactive
  • Unable to sleep
Also reach your doctor right away (or call 911 if an emergency) if you start taking Cymbalta and develop any of the following symptoms:

  • Rash, hives, itching, difficulty breathing or swallowing, or swelling in your face or neck area
  • Unusual bruising or bleeding
  • Abdominal swelling or pain in the upper right part of the stomach
  • Eyes or skin that turn yellowish
  • Dark-colored urine
  • Exhaustion or flu-like symptoms
  • Fever, sweating, or confusion
  • Blurry vision
  • Blisters or peeling skin
  • Agitation, hallucinations, coma, or other changes in mental status
  • Coordination problems or muscle twitching (overactive reflexes)
  • Racing heartbeat
  • High or low blood pressure
  • Severe nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea
  • Muscle rigidity
  • Tremor
  • Seizures
In addition, some people taking Cymbalta experience side effects such as stomach pain, nausea or other gastrointestinal symptoms, dizziness, weakness, fatigue, or changes in sexual desire or function. Let your doctor know if any of these symptoms last a long time or do not go away.
