I used to take Cymbalta, and I think it depends on your diagnosis - (I take Lamactil).  My pdoc doesn't think that Cymbalta is good for BP1 - and he took me off of it.  It was a HARD withdrawal period, but I do feel better now just taking Cymbalta.

I'm on Cymbalta & Lamictal, it works GREAT for me.
I've had no problems at all.
I went thru the slow starting on both. The Lamictal
took longer to get in my system, but once it was
on target I was great!
The Cymbalta they added later. It works well
too. I really like this combo...

I was on this combo for quite some time...it was the longest lasting combo of anything we had tried over a period of about 7 years.  Good luck!!
