It depends on your condition. I take delayed release and have benefited from it in the fact that you don't have to stop and think about what you are eating and when. If your symptoms rarely flare up then I would suggest not taking the delayed release because you do need stomach acid to digest your food. If it is often and very bothersome then go for the delayed release. All it means is that you are getting the benefit of the medication over a longer period of time rather than immediately. The language screws up the perception.

I am taking Cymbalta 30mg twice a day. Today I took Cymbalta 30mg delayed release. Does that matter?
