well, i have been on Cymbalta for about 3 months now. i LOVE the pain relief i've gotten from it. it has worked better than anything else i've tried. lately, though, my blood pressure has been extremely high (160/102) and my bloodwork has been coming back with some off numbers: elevated liver enzymes, high glucose, and high cholesterol. my doctor didn't seem to think anything of any of it, just wanted to add more pills, so i started doing my own research, and found out that all those things are possible side effects of Cymbalta. i brought up this info to the doctor, and he decided that i should go off of the Cymbalta, and come back in a month to check my blood and blood pressure to see if that was the cause. his taper schedule was go down to 30mg 1x/day for a week, then stop. does this seem normal? i did this, and i am feeling a little weird. head feels funny, headache, just feel weird. then i ask the doctor what am i gonna do about the pain, and he said he does not give pain medicine for Fibromyalgia, but if he did, he would give to me. then proceded to say that was a compliment. gee, thanks. well, i've been off the Cymbalta for 2 days, and lo and behold the old familar feeling of pain is coming back. i'm really scared to be in pain again, and have nothing to help with it. i am so frustrated with this illness and doctors. Lord, please help me.
