Lilly has defended these cases vigorously and has won every case to reach a decision on the merits, including Cymbalta prescribing information fdating verdicts in every trial.

At first it made me feel much better, but after a few months all I Cymbalta prescribing information fdating was the constant sweating, twitching, but worst of all, it made me manic. I would try and wean myself off it but Cymbalta prescribing information fdating withdrawal symptoms were unbearable: With the support of my friends I finally got off it and have been Cymbalta free for 4 years.
