Could it be possible that generic cymbalta (duloxetine) causes much more nausea than brand cymbalta (duloxetine)...switched 2 months ago ...and see a difference.

Yes: Duloxetine (Cymbalta) is an SNRI medication used for major depression, generalized anxiety, fibromyalgia and some types of pain. A generic has been available for several months now. Although the active ingredient is the same, the binders and fillers in the generic may be different from the brand name, and this can cause differences in efficacy and side effects.
