Welcome and thanks for your question , yes , Cymbalta can be used to treat or manage pain specially neuropathic pain ( in which there is peripheral nerve inflammation or irritation ) , joint pain , muscle pain ,lower back pain , arthritis or fibromyalgia ( in this condition , the patient experiences generalized muscle pain ,fatigue , depression ,anxiety and/or headaches ).
The recommended dose to manage pain is 60 mg per day , doctors usually begin with a lower dose of 30 mg so your body can adjust to the medication gradually .
It could take some time until 4 weeks for your body to experience full benefits from the medication.
