Re: fm cymbalta and insomnia
I was on Cymbalta for 4 months. With the exception of maybe 5 nights, I would fall asleep, then 2 hours later I was suddenly wide awake. Would be up for a while, then two hours sleep, then wide awake. I went off the Cymbalta 5 days ago and have slept through the night the last 3 nights. Last night I slept 11 straight hours. I was not told that Cymbalta could cause insomnia and when I questioned taking it about 2 months and again 3 months after being prescribed, I was told it was not one of the known side effects. I am completely exhausted, I think from going so long without good sleep. I am so glad I went off of it and will never take it again. The insomnia did NOT get better the longer I took Cymbalta. If you are having this problem, make them change you to something else or nothing. We have enough pain with FM without going without sleep, too.
