I was put on Cymbalta and I noticed that I am having very difficult time urinating.It also seems to make my restless legs worse.It has helped me but afraid of the side effects or will they pass with time.Makes me very sleepy as well.Has anyone had any experience with similar issues and if so once my body adjust to the medication the side effects will go away? I stopped taking it for now

Yes, in a few cases Cymbalta has been reported to cause painful urination and urine hesitancy. How long have you been on your medication?
Side effects generally resolve within just days to a couple of weeks but if it's persistent you should report it to your doctor.
Also, you should never stop taking this type of medication abruptly unless you've only been on it for a couple of days or you could experience symptoms of discontinuation.
Best regards and I hope you're feeling better quickly.
