Anyone have any really terrible side effects with Cymbalta? I am starting it today. How about with drinking alcohol on Cymbalta? I am a social drinker usually just weekends but I do love my wine. I am concerned with this being a psych med it may not mix well although my one friend has been on this a few years and has had no issues with alcohol. I know it says to avoid alcohol I am aware I am curious if anyone has had good or bad experience. When I tried Effexor it did not mix well at all after having more than a few drinks, it could cause weird behavior and black outs even and there was really no warnings on the bottle. I am hoping Cymbalta will be different as my Dr thinks this medicine could be helpful for pain and stomach issues for me. Any experiences would be helpful. Thank you.

hi, usually on other forums, but i seen cymbalta, and have used it. it is a powerful anti-depressant that is also used for pain mgt, as it helps with nerve conductivity. i would be careful with alcohol with this drug and keep to limits. all the best.
