In brief: It could
Antidepressants can have varying effects on weight.
That being said, Cymbalta (duloxetine) is not one of the "weight gainers" where the probability is that the person is going to gain weight. All in all Cymbalta (duloxetine) should be weight neutral or not cause a change in weight or at most vary by +- 5-10 pounds.
