3 doctors weighed in:

Does excitalopram or cymbalta (duloxetine) in anyway cause hypothyroidism? And can I stop taking cymbalta (duloxetine) now that I've been diagnosed with hypothyroidism???

2 doctors agree

In brief: Cymbalta (duloxetine)

Cymbalta (duloxetine) does not directly affect thyroid function, but some side-effects may resemble low thyroid function states.
Anecdotal studies reported abnormal thyroid function in less than 1%.
