Cymbalta (duloxetine) is a serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (SNRI) made by Eli Lilly and is prescribed to treat major depression and generalized anxiety disorder. It is also approved to treat diabetic nerve pain, fibromyalgia and musculoskeletal pain associated with osteoarthritis and chronic lower back pain.
Studies have shown that 50%-78% of Cymbalta users experience antidepressant withdrawal symptoms after stopping the drug. However, the label states that only 1%-2% of users experience withdrawal symptoms. The class action lawsuits claim Eli Lilly failed to warn the public that the severity of the withdrawal systems were so severe that it was given its own diagnosis: Cymbalta Discontinuation Syndrome.
In 2009, the FDA issued a report that stated the Cymbalta withdrawal symptoms can be severe and last weeks or even months. The FDA also stated the company’s sales representatives and marketing materials do not adequately warn of the withdrawal symptoms and they have not developed a safe protocol for safely stopping Cymbalta. Furthermore, a study funded and conducted by Eli Lilly states up to 41% of Cymbalta users have antidepressant withdrawal symptoms and of those, 46% were moderate and 17% were severe. But the company still states on the drug label that these withdrawal symptoms are rare and only occur in about 1% of the users.
