Cymbalta question

Is it possible to feel side effects from a new drug within days of taking it? I'm waiting for a call back from the doc. I'm on day three and I haven't slept since. My face is on fire. I'm restless and can't sleep more than an hour at a time because of how bad my face burns. Now I did have an epidural last Wednesday and I always get facial flush from that but never this long.
Left side MicroD l5-s1 2/7/13. Re herniated immediately
Revision bilateral MicroD and posterior lumbar decompression 9/9/13. Failed. L5-S1 fusion on 3/6/14.


  • Medicine can cause side affects from the first dose. If you start to have any issue with breathing, immediately go to the ER. I had a similar reaction with Niaspan. I jumped in the shower trying to cool my body off...didn't work! If you can't get in touch with your doc, call the ER and they may advise what to do.

    Several Epidurals, L4-S1 360 ALIF, Numerous Facet Joint Injections, RFA x2
