No: Cymbalta (duloxetine) is not an addictive medication but if abused may lead and result in the classic cycle of addiction for a long period of time. Cymbalta (duloxetine) should always be tapered down and not stopping abruptly.
Dr. Stuart Wasser
Addiction Medicine 36 years experience
No but: There is often a discontinuation syndrome evev when stopping from the lowest dose.
