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.
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!!!
