Have you guys had dental problems from cymbalta exposure? In the past 2-3 years there's been a huge spike in cavities and need for root canals, crowns, extractions and an implant even.

I am still at 18 beads both a.m. and p.m. for my friends following my story. I want to reduce but with so much uncertainty it still feels imprudent. I am at about 8mg a day since my last try back in Feb.

Hey Lovey...

 

Great to see you back here! This can be very easily caused by symptoms of a dry mouth and one user suffered similar to you;

Hope you are well dear H....

Thanks IUN,

I drink so much water! Maybe could be dry mouth. I eat maybe too much sugar sometimes too but its really gotten crazy, the amount of dental decay I'm starting to see!!

Chewing gum will stimulate saliva, so that isn't too much of a problem, just make sure it is sugar free.
