I have had diarrhea with the generic and Cymbalta. I'm on 20mg a day and its been 3 weeks, and I go 3 times a day. I talked to the Dr. and she said take imodium, it helps somewhat, I can't keep taking it. I have lost 3 lbs and I am done with dealing with this. Help! Bonnie
Keep yourself well hydrated with beverages high in electrolytes such as orange juice or one of the fortified waters. Sometimes diarrhea can be a problem when starting or stopping an antidepressant so this may adjust given time. If the weight loss continues, let doc know.
