Just to add, this may or may not be related to cymbalta, but don't take any chances with your heart. It's not worth risking it... Mary

I had a horrible reaction. I experienced tachycardia among every other awful symptom within 5 days which led me to the ER and I was taken off. I agree with Mary!!! free discount card
