I'm a 21 year old male who's been taking Cymbalta (duloxetine) for Depression/Headaches. I started off on 30mg and am now on 60mg. I noticed I am showing weird signs of premature ageing (aging), I am lossing alot of hair of head and eyebrows, growing odd grey hairs and have developed a few wrinkles on my forehead and a little loose skin on my body. I was wondering if anyone else had noticed any of these side effects or if it could be something different causing it?
I doubt that this is from the Cymbalta, and it may be that you don't even need the Cymbalta. Something is out of whack with your thyroid or something else in your endocrine system, which can also cause depression. I would make an appt. to see an Endocrinologist ASAP. Let us know what you find out and take care.
