Cymbalta and an Empty Stomach
Last night when I took my Cymbalta, I took it just before dinner on an empty stomach. When I mean empty, I mean I had a single slice of pizza around noon and dinner was around 7 p.m. and when I mean before dinner I mean it was about five minutes before eating. It appears that was enough time for the medication to start having an effect on me. Normally at the 40mg dosage, I have little side effects, but last night I was really out of it, I was very sleepy, breathing very shallow, I was very numb, I felt like a zombie.
I’m not 100% sure if it was the empty stomach, but I will put that one in my notes, making sure I eat before I take my Cymbalta.
