Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

One additional dose will not be a problem.

Cymbalta is pretty safe medication. You have been on it for long time. Hence your body will tolerate one extra dose without problem.

Do not worry.

You can continue our next dose as scheduled tomorrow.
Best wishes,
