FDA Clears Cymbalta to Treat Chronic Musculoskeletal Pain
Date:11/4/2010

ergic reactions such as hives, rashes and/or swelling of the face, pneumonia, depressed mood, suicide, suicidal thoughts and behavior.

While these serious side effects have been associated with the use of Cymbalta, they have occurred in less than 1% of treated patients. There are a finite number of drugs available for the treatment of chronic musculoskeletal pain, all of which are associated with rare, serious side effects. There are patients in whom none of the available treatments are effective.  

The recommended dose for Cymbalta is a 60 milligram capsule taken once daily without regard to meals. The capsule should be swallowed whole, and not chewed, crushed or opened; the contents should never be sprinkled on food or mixed with liquids.

Consumers and health care professionals are encouraged to report adverse events to the FDA's MedWatch program at 800-FDA-1088 or online at www.fda.gov/medwatch/how.htm.

Cymbalta is manufactured by Indianapolis-based Eli Lilly and Co.
