I've been on Cymbalta since February and developed a cough in April. I've been to countless Drs. and had multiple tests and medications with no relief. It was suggested it may be my medication but I'm reluctant to get off the Cymbalta because it works so well managing my migraines. Has this happened to anyone else and did getting off of Cymbalta help the cough?
Sorry you're having trouble with the cough. That might be a side effect of the drug. go to https://www.drugs.com/cymbalta.html on this site to learn about the side effects and maybe that might help. One of the side effects is dry mouth which might contribute to it. Hope this helps.
I have a severe cough which causes difficulty breathing and starting to think it is due to cymbalta which I take for fibromyalgia. Doctor has given me an inhaler which is making it worse. I have a doctors appointment in a weeks time. I haven't taken the cymbalta for 2 days and slight improvement
I have been on the generic form of Cymbalta for 3 months. I developed a cough 2 weeks after starting 20 mg. It also feels like a tickle in my throat. I’m not congested and not having breathing problems. I’ve been to my ENT, Gastrointestinal doc & my PCP. I’ve taken PIP regimen, inhalers, Mucinex. When I return home from my trip, I have to head back to my doctor. My nurse practitioner who prescribed the meds says it’s not the cause.
