I have been experiencing severe diarrhea since starting Cymbalta after two weeks. I stopped the drug for 10 days and have noticed improvement. I have also noticed severe increase In my pain level. Has anybody else experience severe diarrhea with cymbalta?
I had severe diarrhea when I took Cymbalta. My doctor convinced me to keep trying it even though at that point the diarrhea had been ongoing for 10 days as he didn't think it was the Cymbalta causing it. Even though I was still in pain he was sure it was going to help.
The diarrhea got worse and I lost 10 pounds in 11 days and my chronic pain started to get worse as well. Turns out you can get rebound pain when taking Cymbalta.
Don't wait too long if you are going to stop taking it as after 4 weeks on you could have some terrible side effects when stopping as I did.
Hope this helps you.
