Can cymbalta be taken beyond 120mg, I would increase myself to 150mg, or 180mg, has this been done?

I have not heard of a prescribing dose being higher than 120mg. I don't know what side effects/overdose possibilities there are to cymbalta but I would search dosing info on this site for more info.

Hello crazy-one. NO. Cymbalta can cause a person blood pressure to drop. That alone should be a warning and thats at the recommended daily dose of 60mg. The ceiling dose be the person taking the drug for arthritis, depression or fibrmayalia remains at 60mg. I'd not recommend self medicating. Best of wishes,pledge
