I'm on 60mg of cymbalta daily for one year and recently I have no tolerance for heat. Does anyone have a similar experience?
I've been on cymbalta for a little over a year, I can't tolerate heat either. But honestly I was taking blood pressure medicine before cymbalta, and I couldn't tolerate the heat then either. I'd say it's worse now. I think a lot of meds make us heat intolerant. Also I get dehydrated very easily, and if I do - look out, sores in my mouth, headache, nausea. I watch my water intake very carefully. I have gone to drinking bottled water so I know exactly how many ounces I've consumed.
Yes cymbalta can cause heat intolerance for some people as well as excessive sweating and flushing. Not very pleasant side effects.
You need to make sure you don't get too heated up as it is hard to cool yourself down and don't let yourself get dehydrated.
Absolutely! my "hotflashes" ended about 4 days after switching back to Effexor. Don't misunderstand, cymbalta worked well for me on so many levels, I didn't know that it was causing them until after the fact. But I thought I was actually going through menopause! Lol so to make a long story short, yes!
Cymbalta can cause that and SO MUCH MORE! I've been on it for less than a year and I hate it. If I forget to take a day or two's dose, my body goes into a downward spiral and I go into a depression that I've never felt before. I'm talking "sleeping during the day for 10+ hours, don't want to do ANYTHING, suicidal ideation" kind of depression. I think the only reason I was prescribed it by my PCP was because I had anxiety and I was experiencing neuropathy pain. Now, I am at a point where every day I am googling "how to get off cymbalta". It is the DEVIL!!!
YES! Among many other issue. I've stopped it and they are all going away. I was always hot, sweaty and had bad night sweats. I thought it was hormones. Nope, that devil drug!
