Cymbalta Side Effects: Final Thoughts
It is possible that you may experience some or none of these side effects explained above. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will have side effects from a medicine that you have never tried.
Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects while taking the medication. Also, let your healthcare provider know if you develop something that "just does not seem right." While it may not be a side effect of Cymbalta, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
