Seems like many people experience some sleep problems. Would it be best to take this drug mid-day with lunch - to offset the nausea issue and perhaps the sleep distrubance issue?

Hello falltex. I was on cymbalta for just over a year and a half. I took it in in the morning, upon awakening with a glass of water. The nausea should begin to leave you, once your body has accepted the drug. I'd say whatever you're most comfortable with. Everyones system is different, as you know. Just try taking your dose at one time, try not to split it, for the drug won't be working at its full potency.best to you and I hope you do well on it.

my dr and i was changing over from prozac to cymbalta being i heard its good and wanted to give it a try, worst move, it made my skin crawl and was just horrid, i was up for 3 days, so i went back to prozac and just took 40 mg dose instead of the 20 i use to, you may want to consider something else
