Advice & Tips: After several years of taking Cymbalta I noticed some rather significant memory issues. I have no idea if the issues are related to the drug, but I've read other reviews by patients taking Cymbalta, wherein they state exactly the same problem/concerns. Very scary. I was weaned off of Cymbalta with the help of my doctor, who provided nutritional options. It was difficult for the first few months, but then I was fine. However, I recently had surgery on my foot, which left me depressed from being immobile, and in pain from the surgery. I also began to get back the fibro pain. Now I'm wondering if the pain is from the stress of the surgery on my body, or from going off of the nutritional plan (elimination diet) that my doctor had put me on. So it seems I'm going to have to start over one way or another, but am afraid of Cymbalta. Decisions, decisions...
