I take 20mg Cymbalta every day. My work day got the best of me and while I thought I was taking my Vitamin D (which I had just taken and forgot), I took 40mg Cymbalta and realized it after I swallowed. I've been on 30mg before and it was a bit too much (I felt incredible but it gave me the poops). Is 40mg something I should be concerned about? (Minus probably getting the poops... oops.)
If I'm on 20mg Cymbalta every day, will an accidental dose of 40mg be detrimental?

EDIT: FOR ANYONE ELSE THAT MIGHT NEED TO KNOW. I called the hotline to find out if this should be concerning and was advised that it shouldn't be a problem. I may experience tiredness or an upset bowel but that's about it.
Minus the poops, I don't think you have anything to worry about. You may wish to avoid dosing or, better still, take just half a tablet (10 mg) the day after you accidentally doubled dosed - but even that is probably not necessary.
All the best and take care for now.
