Yes, with caution.: You should not combine Cymbalta (duloxetine) with chronic or heavy alcohol use due to possible increase risk to the liver. Caution is always advised when combining drugs that act in the brain, in this case alcohol and cymbalta (duloxetine).

Not at same time: You should take your duloxetine with water, not wine or other kinds of alcohol. While on duloxetine, i agree with dr. Reynolds' advice to be very cautious in your drinking.

Is glass of wine ok to have on duloxetine?

Probably: You would want to be cautious because you could get added sedation with the combination of alcohol and duloxetine. You may find that you do not tolerate the same amount of alcohol as in the past due to the medication.
