I am a 29 year old male. I have bipolar. Have been on cymbalta for about 8 years. I take 90mg a day. Everyday. At the same time. If I don't take it at the same time I will have side effects. If I forget to take it, which rarely happens. I have side effects within a few hours. Which reminds to take my meds.

I have noticed in the last few months an increase in muscle soreness and joint pain. I read this is something that happens. But is there any way to make it not happen?
