    That is an extremely high dose. I was on 60mg and it is harder very hard to wean off of it. Sick for weeks when I lowered dose to 40 and then to 20mg. You are better off with Gabapentin or Lyrica for fibromyalgia pain, the duloxetine did not help me with nerve pain at all. The Lyrica did.

      I talked to my Doctor about Gabapentin but he wasn't having any off it. The only side effects so far are tiredness and urinating more. I also suffer with Major Depressive disorder so i wondered if thats why he gave me Duloxatinerolleyes

    I have been on 60 mg of Cymbalta since 2007 for radial nerve pain and have had no pain or complications.  When I tried the generic Duloxatine, I had nightmares and high anxiety

    Hi. I have been taking Cymbalta for fibromyalgia and chronic migraines for a few months and I haven’t noticed any side effects aside from mild drowsiness. Have you experienced  any new symptoms or sensations since you started the medication? Also, your body could still be adjusting to the medication and it may take a few weeks to a few months to subside. However, if the feelings become more intense or persist definitely speak with your doctor.Hope this helps.
