i have been on Cymbalta for about 3 months now. it has been helping alot with my pain. recently (within the last month or so), my blood pressure has been extremely high. it was 160/102 a couple days ago at the doctor, and has been around the same all the other times i've been to him. i've never had high blood pressure like this before. it concerned my doctor enough that i am now on a med for high blood pressure. i was thinking it may be from the Cymbalta, so i looked up info on it, and sure enough, high blood pressure is a side effect. my most recent labs had some other high results too 9that i've never had before): high cholesterol, high glucose, and high liver numbers too. (i have to have an ultrasound on my stomach for that one on Thursday). just curious if any others have had high blood pressure from Cymbalta? and what did you do? i love the pain relief i get from Cymbalta, but am wondering if that's what's causing the high blood pressure, if it's worth having such a high BP from a med (or safe)? i'm wondering if it's a good idea to keep adding meds from a side effect from a med? any input from anyone would be greatly appreciated.
