My doc just prescribed it for depression but he says it is going to help with pain (perpheral neuropathy) too. I am excited. Only been on it week and a half. he did not mention diarreha though, he is a shrink. I will ask him when I see him on Tuesday. Good luck!!!
My doc told me that cymbalta can be slightly constipating so just drink more water. I told him with my diarrhea numerous times a day I would welcome slight constipation LOLI've only been on it for 3 days now but haven't had any change in my pain or bowels. Keep us posted on your use and if it seems to be helping you or not.
I was on this one. It does kill the pain in fact I didn't feel a thing. No pain, nothing.The only thing that was bad was I kept crying. I quit this one becasue of that. I wasn't constipated since I am mostly D thanks to no gallbladder and nerves, I had nice BM's. Was proud of them.
Good luck!P.S.- this is suppose to be similar to Effexor.
