Advice & Tips: I LOVE CYMBALTA!!! the medication works very well and has for years -- the only thing that comes close is the lyrica -- outside of that -- cymbalta is number one!! Just don't miss a dose or 2 as you will fill this partial insanity -- it seems for me the longer i am on this the shorter the time period for the side effects to show up if, and only if, i miss a dose
Cost: $25-49 monthly
Side effects: Dizziness, Sweating increased, Side effects when dose skipped

Advice & Tips: I would advise anyone who is going to take this medication to check your other medications first. I had been taking Tramadol which increases the serotonin in the brain and my doctor wanted me to try the Cymbalta to help with my pain along with my Tramadol. It also increases serotonin in the brain and he said if it was too much it can cause severe problems even death. He still wanted me to try it so I took it for about 5 days & I was in the most pain ever in my life. It started the first day with a massive migrane which got worse each day so I stopped taking my Tramadol to see if that would help & it didn't so finally I called my Doctor and he said stop the Cymbalta and just keep taking the Tramadol.
Side effects: Serotonin syndrome, Migraine headaches
