Does anyone know if you can take Cymbalta and protonix(GERD meds).  I am trying to find out but cannot since it is Sun.  And what side effects have you experienced?  Thanks.

Do you have a pharmacist nearby at a drugstore? You can call and ask them - that's what they're trained for.

If you know the names of your medications, you can go to a "drug interaction checker" online. You add your meds, then click to check for an interaction. It will tell you if there is a warning/caution or if there is a Bad Interaction and the meds should NOT be taken together. I would only use these sites for informational purposes. TALK to your Dr. before making changes in your meds!
You can also check drug/vitamin/herbs interactions. Some herbal remedies can interact with prescription meds.
Google (drug interaction checker) or (drug, herb, vitamin interaction checker).
I hope this helps.

Just the side effects of Cymbalta alone can cause some serious damage. I was stupid enough to take it for 4 days and was much worse
than before I started. Then I found the list of side effects in Arthritis Today and was seriously shocked. Most of them aren't even
printed on the stuff you get from the pharmacy. I never knew that "happy" pills could cause "various types of cancer". SCARY shakehead
