Yes cymbalta is know for raising the blood pressure. Usually only a small amount which will go back to normal after stopping the med but of course something that raises blood pressure in the majority of users can cause unacceptable increases in blood pressure in a small percentage of users.
My BP was higher than normal while on the med but it wasn't a problem as I normally have lower than average BP. I have been off the med for almost 4 months and my BP is coming back down to my normal levels.
That said Do Not Abruptly stop taking this med. It must be tapered very slowly to reduce the risk of severe side effects.
