Hi,

The most common side effect when taking duloxetine(Cymbalta) is nausea.

It's good to discuss it with your doctor also.

You should try Zantac 150 mg twice a day after meals.

You should maintain a good hydration.

Eat small meals throughout the day.

Avoid late night eating.

And elevate your head with an extra pillow while sleeping.

Nausea may be caused by stress,Fibromyalgia themselves.

Between 40% and 70% of fibromyalgia sufferers experience symptoms of chronic nausea.

Feel free for further queries. It's good to discuss rather than quit.
Your satisfaction is our goal.

I have been taken off my Lyrica as my fibromyalgia has gotten better over time. I take omeprazale 20 mg most night.
Health Professional: Onlinedoc, General Physician replied 2 years ago

You should take 20 mg of Omeprazole twice a day before meals.

And try other self care remedies also.

You should maintain a good hydration.
Eat small meals throughout the day.
Avoid late night eating.
And elevate your head with an extra pillow while sleeping.

Stay away from fried or greasy foods.

Milk products should be avoided.

Ginger has also been shown to be potentially effective in treating nausea so try ginger tea.

Second to ginger is peppermint, which has a calming effect on the lining of the stomach.

Hope this helps.

I am status-post gastric bypass in 2012. I have had no problems with my surgery ever since. I had. Barium swallow test to check for leaks/blockages and there are none. My nause started 3 weeks so and has been persistent. No fever. Endoscopy looked good with no ulcers or scarring. Just have constant nausea. I take Cymbalta 20 mg nightly, ambien 20 me nightly.
Health Professional: Onlinedoc, General Physician replied 2 years ago

As we have discussed Cymbalta can cause nausea.

You should ask your doctor to change your medicine so you can feel better.

Other possible differential diagnosis may include Irritable bowel syndrome.

Hope this helps.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
