TL:DR - Has anyone experienced new side effects from Cymbalta months after starting it and feeling fine while on it (and no change in dosage)?
Longer version of post:
I've been through several of the common side effects people experience when starting Cymbalta as well as common withdrawal symptoms when stopping (this is actually my third time being on Cymbalta). In my experiences, the initial side effects would go away after a week or two or so.
I've been on it again for several months now and up until a couple of weeks ago, I wasn't experiencing any noticeable side effects. But recently I've started feeling irritable again and sometimes feel like my vision gets more blurred at times...like my eyes don't always adjust to looking at different things at different distances as fast as they used to.
I just had my annual physical and the doctor said I'm good, and I had an eye exam earlier in the year and my eyes were good. So I'm wondering if the cymbalta might be causing these symtoms I'm feeling, even though I've been feeling fine for several months with no side effects and no change in my cymbalta dosage. The only thing that has changed slightly is my sleeping medication. I've tried several things, and the doctor was having me use melatonin. I've been buying it OTC but I haven't always bought the same kind. The most recent type I bought contains several other ingredients besides melatonin. I thought it might be an interaction with one of the other ingredients, so I stopped taking it a few days ago. But I don't think the irritability and sometimes vision blurriness has gone away since stopping it.
