Hi VIB, it seems by your question that you were prescribed Cymbalta for pain. Cymbalta, as Dzoo has said is an antidepressant, and helps occasionally for certain types of chronic pain. It can also take up to four weeks to start working. Perhaps if you added some more information, we could give a more thorough answer.
Have to agree with the rest of the answers, Cymbalta is not a narcotic, it is used for several conditions and is an ssri, can be used for depression, general anxiety disorder and can be used for diabetic peripheral neuropathy pain just to name a few... hope that helped
