Everyone can have different side effects from any and all medications.

Sleep disturbances and stomach aches are ususally on most medication side affect lists in the category with that particular medication. You can find the Drug Information Leaflet online.

I have several sleep disorders, fibromyalgia, arthritis, cervical nerve root impingement, and another slew of things and it takes a lot of trial and error with medications to find the right one.

I would call the prescribing doctor. There are many other options. It really depends on what your diagnosis is, and what the Cymbalta is supposed to do for you, as it is used for treatment of more that one thing.

I do know from personal experience that some medications can cause stomach and GI issues.

Don't wait - call the doctor and discuss the pain with them.
