Cymbalta for pain.

Hi everyone, just looking some advice.

My Neuro has started me an cymbalta for pain - 60mg capsule when going to bed. I woke up at 2am and couldn’t get back to sleep. I have felt sick and off colour all day :frowning:

Has anyone experienced this and if so, any advice would be very much appreciated.

Hi, I can’t be of any help, have not had any experience of this used in MS for pain. Maybe some others on the site can help you.Sorry, Julie

Cymbalta is an anti-depressant and like alot of them, they will take a bit of getting used to like any medication, hopefully they will settle down.

I take it for pain and low mood ( according to the label ) I swapped my fluoxetine and tramadol for the Cymbalta and yes it does take a while to get used to new drugs so maybe try it for a bit longer.

Hope it helps
