Cymbalta Side Effects

The web site you are on is The Road Back Program. The Road Back is a member of California Association of Alcoholism & Drug Abuse Counselors (CAADAC).  We have been assisting people off psychoactive medication since 1999, and have helped well over 50,000 people off their drugs.

We have listed 186 of the common Cymbalta side effects below on this page. All medical terms have been defined for the ease of understanding. This is not all of the Cymbalta side effects from Cymbalta clinical studies, that number would be over 500 hundred. We have used the Freedom of Information Act and have received the actual Cymbalta side effect information to verify this data. If you feel like you have been harmed by Cymbalta there are additional avenues to explore. Click here for more information.

Cymbalta side effects mimic Cymbalta withdrawal side effects. In other words, the Cymbalta side effects may only begin when Cymbalta is being reduced. You may not have these Cymbalta side effects at this time but when the Cymbalta is reduced any of the side effects may begin.

The web site you are currently on is called The Road Back. We are located in the United States and we have been helping people off Cymbalta and other psychoactive drugs since 1999. As of 2014, over 50,000 people have used this program to become drug free, that we know of. With over 14 million web site visitors and offering all of the information for free, the numbers of people that have used this information are probably quite higher.

Every chapter of How to Get Off Psychoactive Drugs Safely can be read on this web site for free. Click How to Start on the top navigation menu for chapters and links to each chapter. With Cymbalta being a time release antidepressant, you would follow chapter 10.

You will read certain nutritional supplements are used to help eliminate or stop specific Cymbalta side effects. You can read below a bit about each supplement used and what they are used for.
