My father (65) has been taking Cymbalta for several years. On Feb 24th Saturday,he started complaining to me about ringing in his ears. Didn't get to see him much until the following Wednesday, when I talked to him on the phone and he asked me about a wreck (that I didn't have) I told him there was no accident. I then came home to check on him where I found him looking out the window talking. I kept trying to get his attention with no luck. I finally went to the window and got him to come to the door. He was in the process of making him a dinner. I was asking him what was wrong and he said he was upset about my wreck. I once again assured him there was no wreck and I asked who told him. He said that I was home all day talking to him about it. He also said the neighbor was in the house talking to him about it as well. I called the neighbor, who told me he wasn't even around. I then got to looking into my fathers medication and noticed that he didn't have any Cymbalta and that he had the generic Duloxetine and it was filled on Feb 9th. I also remember about two years ago my dad running out of Cymbalta and for about a week it seemed like pure hell to him. I know he has been taking his medication. This past Friday Saturday and even today he seemed to do ok. But every so often he zones out and then about after a minute he will come back to. He still gets up and makes him breakfast and dinners. He had brain scans done in July and those came back normal. He is a diabetic but his sugar levels have been ok. Does this seem normal or what could be the issue. His Dr isn't really much help. Even my dad doesn't like her, but it the one my mother had him going to before she passed away and he wont swap.
