Exclamation cymbalta

Started it a few days ago. First couple days were fine, now I'm very tired and can't see correctly the last two. Does this pass?

Re: cymbalta

I never had any vision problems with cymbalta. Maybe you should call your Dr.
If it were me and my vision was affected I'd stop taking it until talking to your doc.

Re: cymbalta

I take 60 mg cymbalta in the morning and 30 mg in the evening. Although I'm very fatigued, I'm pretty sure the cymbalta doesn't have anything to do with it (it started before I was on cymbalta). I have not had any vision problems. I hope you get it taken care of. Cymbalta works wonders for me.

Hi, I'm on 120 mg. of Cymbalta now and this should pass. I've been on it for a while. It does help some with the pain. I also take nurontin with it. I've started taking a good multivitamin to. Hope you do well on the Cymbalta.

Re: cymbalta

How about bladder retention? I can barely pee. I drink plenty of fluids and it only trickles out a little.

Re: cymbalta

I haven't had any issues with bladder retention on cymbalta. I have been on generic vesicare for overactive bladder for about 6 months now, actually.

Re: cymbalta

I started taking 60 mg of Cymbalta approximately eight months ago and have not had vision issues. If you take more than I do it may be effect you differently.

Re: cymbalta

When I was on cymbalta sweat poured out of every pore in my body like a spiggot and I never had bladder retention, quite the opposite since I wasn't getting enough exercise. I did have severe fatigue also and remember sleeping around the clock many times. I've been off it for about a year now; the sweating took about 6 months to completely stop but the fatigue went away fairly quickly.

Re: cymbalta

Booboo, I began Cymbalta one week ago tomorrow and I have had no side effects at all that I can tell. The only side effect I am having is a very positive effect on my pain. So far it has been a godsend.

Hope your symptoms subside.
