You could easily have side effects such as dizziness or light-headedness; shock-like sensations; anxiety; diarrhea; fatigue; headache; insomnia; irritability; nausea; tremor; and visual disturbances.
The good news is that they will not last long provided you are still taking some cymbalta.
Okay. NOW I am having side effects. Night before last, I was so nauseated, I thought I would die. But, I didn't. I went to sleep finally with the aid of one Tums. The Fish Oil tablet seems to bring on the nausea, so I have dropped that. However, I am drinking lots of water. No brain zaps. I am feeling very tired. Day before yesterday I slept through the morning, and part of the afternoon, and then slept through the night. Yesterday, I got up and made myself do things in the morning, so that I couldn't sleep. But, in the afternoon, I was just bushed, so laid down on the bed and fell fast asleep for about a half hour. Then slept all night last night. Since I've been having bad insomnia, this is a real bonus! I've also been sweating when I do the littlest work, (I call it Cymbalta sweats), and have had a bad headache off and on. But, I am perservering. Still on 60 Cymbalta, down from 90 on Monday night. I take it at night so I won't sweat. Ha!
