Hi all, My niece has been going through a really bad pain and high stress period and has been put on cymbalta. I have always been afraid of it because of the bad side effects I have heard/read about. She has not heard of any bad effects. She has however had a couple of bad experiences. She told me that she ran out, missed her dose and then woke up from a horrific nightmare not knowing where she was. The next day, still not having any, she had the same experience again. I told her that what I remembered was you aren't supposed to just "stop" taking it like that. Can any of you offer any advice I can pass on to her? Thank you for all your help.
