Is Cymbalta used for MS patients for pain? At the moment I take 30 mg but my doctor suggested 60 mg after one week.
Cymbalta is used to treat depression and chronic pain. I find it particularly useful for patients with disrupted sleep and depression co-existing with their chronic pain. It is usually started at the 30 mg dose and increased to the 60 mg dose. Ask your doctor about potential side effects and good luck.
