    Hi all,I'm gearing myself up to swallow my first Cymbalta and want to know what I can expect as far as side effects?

    Thank you!

    Don't drink alcohol. I had 3 beers one evening and took cymbalta before going to bed. I later had a lengthy conversation with my boyfriend. I said some very hurtful things to him that I would not normally say. I remember seeing him come in, but not talking to him. As i recall it made me feel somewhat better, but tired, so I took it at night. I am now taking Effexor. GOOD LUCK!!

    As with any medication you really shouldn't be drinking on it. That's a gimme. Please watch for any of the side effects listed by your doctor or ask your Pharmacist what some of the most common ones are. If you feel like hurting yourself or hurting others than obviously that is a sign that Cymbalta is not for you.

    I hope this med helps you. Best of luck on it & on your journey to well being.

    your friend,
    fun
