If you have a liver problem, consider yourself warned: Cymbalta may make your health condition worse.
More than one million people take prescription drug Cymbalta for major depression and nerve pain associated with diabetes. But now the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Eli Lilly suggest that anyone with a liver problem stop taking the drug. Cymbalta’s label originally warned of liver injury to people who drank alcohol, but now the warning extends to anyone with an underlying liver condition.
The company received several reports of liver injury since August 2004 including jaundice, which causes yellowing of the skin and eyes.
