Hey, I'm new to this site. I broke T2-T8, my sternum, 8 ribs, my left knee, and had a serious brain injury so I'm just looking for someone who can relate I did take Cymbalta for about 8 months. At first it decreased my appetite and gave me more energy. As I adjusted to the medication those side effects stopped but I started to get extremely nausious approximately one hour after I would take it. It wasn't only nausea. If I didn't lay still I would get sick, dizzy and start vomitting. It was like I had severe motion sickness. Anyway, I really think it helped until it started making me sick. I'm sure you know that it is very painful to vomit when you have had a SCI. I hope this helps. Good luck and God Bless!
