It is not listed as a possible side effect.
Hi hillybilly53. Yes Cymbalta certainly does cause hair loss. I am speaking from experience. I have been taking it for approximately 9 years now. I once had a full head of long wavy hair; but I don't anymore. My once long healthy hair was dry and so unhealthy. It lost its shines and I lost so much hair it scared me. My bathtub would plug up because of losing so much hair. I started at 30 mg and went up to 60 mg because it wasn't helping. Over the years I had so many side effects; but it took me years for me to connect them with Cymbalta. I started tapering last year (2017) very slow and I am down to 20 mg. My hair has stopped falling out and my hair is getting fuller again. It is healthier now and I am so relieved. A lot of the horrible side effects are gone now and I am trying to get my life back. It has not been easy; but well worth working at getting this drug out of my body and my life. You can search Cymbalta and hair loss on Google or search it on here on Drugs.com (just go to 'Questions and Answers' and search it). You will find out so much information about Cymbalta and its side effects. I believe that many people do not connect the fact that hair loss; and many other side effects are from Cymbalta because some are not listed. But that does not mean that they are not actual side effects. Take care and I hope you find the information that you need. Best wishes to you.
