For me, I am getting off cymbalta for a variety of reasons. The side effects are terrible, but the main reason are the long term side effects. I read early dementia, kidney and stomach problems. Now that I have my diagnosis, I feel that I can deal with and accept what's happening to my body better. I am still taking small dosage of gabapentin. I have not read anywhere about long term side effects of that med. If anyone knows or read about any,I would appreciate posting on here. Thank you.
