I was fine on Cymbalta but this stuff has caused me to have stomach cramps, gas, constipation and sick stomach. I feel the need to sleep until I feel better. I have been on this medicine for two weeks. I didn't take it yesterday and I felt fine.

Have been taking brand name Cymbalta for 8 years with success. Since taking generic Duloxetine, not so much. Doctor has now increased dosage. Will try that for a while. Cannot take generic thyroid. Do not have much faith in this switch either. Not happy!

After taking Cymbalta for about 2 years it went to generic. I started feeling terrible within 3 weeks of starting generic. It does not work as well but my insurance will not cover the brand name.

Comment:
Having been on Cymbalta which worked great, but I'm really concerned about this generic version. I've had constant bladder burning, two bacterial vaginal infections, now on yeast because of that. I'm just wondering if this is going to work for me. The difference in cost is unreal, but does it have side effects? I also have Intersitial Cystitis.
