Hi VIB, it seems by your question that you were prescribed Cymbalta for pain. Cymbalta, as Dzoo has said is an antidepressant, and helps occasionally for certain types of chronic pain. It can also take up to four weeks to start working. Perhaps if you added some more information, we could give a more thorough answer.
