Question: Cymbalta side effect

 dytko - Mon Oct 24, 2005 3:02 pm

I started taking 40 mg of cymbalta a month ago. I have experienced swelling and twiching of my left eye for the last two weeks! Could this problem be related to cymbalta? Should I lower the dose?

User avatar Hello,
I hope you are feeling better by now. Facial edema and tremor are extremely rare complications of Duloxetine (Cymbalta). If your condition has not completely resolved then you should contact your doctor to have your symptoms evaluated.
