I've taken Cymbalta for pain. My insurance co-pay has gone way up on this drug. Is there a generic?

My insurance co-pay has increased for 2014 from $15 to $90 (30 pill month). Is there a generic or replacement drug I can take? I'm on Medicare and senior blue supplemental Insurance.
At the hospital I work at..I work in the pharmacy, we are still getting brand name Cymbalta... so I do not think a generic is available yet
On another question about Cymbalta, someone said that a generic will be hitting the market in December. You can probably find out through the manufacturer or on the FDA site. Another drug used by many folks on this site is gabapentin, and of course, Lyrica.
My phych told me there will be a generic for Cymbalta in December, as I too, take Cymbalta and my co-pays are also very expensive! About time too, I've been taking it for years. :)
There is not a generic for this yet. Thy have a couple of sister drugs such as Pristiq or Effexor. Effexor does have a generic called venlafaxine.
