I tell ya, puzzled, I was having all those kind of symptoms and they just went away on their own. I firmly believe it was cymbalta that caused it. As soon as I got off it, had a very short course or prednisone (low dose too) and some antibiotics, I have not had any more problems in the mouth. The lids of my eyes still get red, but they don't feel all that dry. I used the lubricating drops that don't have preservatives. I still have joint pain though and going to a Rheumy next week to check that out. I am firing my old one. He did an ANA on me and tested for Sjogren's and that was it. I didn't even complain of dry mouth or eyes. He didn't test me for RA or work up the positive ANA. Sigh....... Good luck to you. I hope all this stuff goes away for you. My dentist told me that she could give me meds for the dry mouth and a lot of people also use the BIotene toothpaste and mouth wash. I heard Oasis is also good. Again, good luck to you.
