Cymbalta (duloxetine) side effect: Cymbalta (duloxetine) is a dual action drug affecting both serotonin and norepinepherine. Side effects arise but are milder than earlier drugs. They may include weight gain, agitation, sexual dysfunction, mild blood pressure elevation among others.

Varied Side Effects: The most commonly observed side effects in cymbalta-treated patients (incidence of at least 5% and at least twice the incidence in placebo patients) were nausea, dry mouth, somnolence, fatigue, constipation, decreased appetite, and hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating). Many of these side effects are short lived as the body adapts to the medication.
