Does Cymbalta (duloxetine) help with hot flashes or does it cause them? I'm seeing mixed reviews. I have severe hot flashes now. I don't want them to get worse!

Does Cymbalta (duloxetine) help with hot flashes or does it cause them?  I'm seeing mixed reviews. I have severe hot flashes now. I don't want them to get worse!

Both: In some people it helps and in others it helps. It is not one of the non-hormonal treatments shown to help with menopausal hot flashes but it is used for depression and some of the chronic pain syndromes. If you have one of those problems it is worth trying and can be stopped if the hot flashes worsen. The most important thing is why you are having the hot flashes. That can determine what helps. ...Read more

I'm 53 and had a D&C/hysteroscopy/polyp and fibroid removal. I started having hot flashes 10 days later & get them every 1/2 hour. Could the D & C have caused this? Maybe messed with my hormones?

May be coincidental: The actual procedures that you had should not have changed your ovarian function, meaning that they should not have changed your hormones. However, you are in perimenopause, so lots of things can bring on more hot flashes. Stress is a big one, and you just had a big stress to your body with the procedure. Any change in sleep, diet, or meds associated with the procedure might also contribute. ...Read more

Hormones: The mood symptoms that occur with perimenopause can be similar to depression.
