Yes, I am gaining weight on Cymbalta and dont understand either. I am waiting to see what the dr. replies. I exercise 5 days a week for an hour and a half and havent lost an ounce.
I have gained from May to December of last year. I have been taking cymbalta for a year. I attributed the gain to a stressful project that I let keep me from exercising. But, I watch what I eat and really eat a balanced diet. Yet, I can't lose the weight! I started walking a mile 3 times a week and took alli as well. Have not lost an ounce.
Sorry, I forgot to add that I gained 30 pounds. I have not really talked to my Dr. about it. Until I read your post, I had not associated the weight gain with cymbalta.
I have been on cymbalta for three years I haved gained about 30 pounds i need to find another rx that will help me lose the weight and help my depression too but cymbalta works the best of any i have taken and i am afraid to change it helps my nerve pain in my arms as well but i still want to sleep during the day and i have no energy to do anything.
