In brief: Hard to answer

Not sure what dose of Cymbalta (duloxetine) you are referring to.
Both medicines affect ne and serotonin, but some people respond better to one medication over the other. It is difficult to compare the antidepressants based on dosages. Everyone responds a bit differently.

In brief: Comparison

At this dose of venlafaxine you will be getting only serotinergic action.
The Cymbalta (duloxetine) is a combo of neurotransmitters and can be effective for some types of pain.
