Is it safe to take Cymbalta when you have CKD?

Cymbalta should be avoided regardless of your health conditions. The withdrawal symptoms from it are severe and long lasting. If you start it’s very difficult to stop.

It all depends on any given individual's response to any given medication. Most people, including myself, have discontinued Cymbalta and other medications with no symptoms as long as done with a gradual taper under a doctor's supervision. You rarely hear about the majority of people's successes because they don't sit down and type comments about it.
I feel sorry for the people who do have problems but it's not a valid reason not to try a medication that's extremely beneficial to most users.

Hi, Fostersinc!
It should be avoided in patients with severe kidney disease so it may depend on the stage of the disease.
A doctor may also prescribe it if they can determine that the benefit outweighs the potential risk in mild to moderate cases.
Best regards,

Thank you, sometimes I think the cause of health problems is medication’s free discount card
