Don't think so, on the contrary clinical studies of Cymbalta have shown that up to 9% of people taking Cymbalta reported a loss of appetite, and up to 2% of people reported weight loss. On average, people lost about one to three pounds while taking Cymbalta. However, it is possible for people to lose large amounts of weight while taking Cymbalta. Although weight loss may be a desirable side effect for some people, too much weight loss can be a problem.
Would recommend that you seek advice form the doc/pharmacist who prescribed the med.
Take care, be well, please!
I also gained (10 pds) on Cymbalta. Rajive is correct, most people do not gain weight and some lose substantial amounts of weight (scary) on Cymbalta.
I suppose it just proves we are all different.
I gained nothing on Lyrica nor Neurontin, and they are famous for weight gain, so go figure!
