I would definately call your dr. for more clear instructions. But when I was first put on Cymbalta I started with taking 30 mg twice a day. I was told to take one in the morning & one at night. They usually start you on a low dosage to begin with twice a day for a month & if you do not have any side effects & it is helping you they will change it.
After the 1st month they changed mine to taking one 60mg only in the morning.
I have been on 60mg once a day for about 5 years & I have not had any side effects from this medication but I know others have. So be sure to go online & check out the list of side effects for Cymbalta so you can watch out for any of them.
I wish you the best of luck & I hope you find relief.
