Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • I took a one week trial of Cymbalta, I took it right before bedtime and it increased my heart rate and blood pressure several points...but I went ahead and got a thirty day prescription filled and continued to take it for another week...until I started getting itchy blisters on my fingers and forearms. I quit taking it 3 days ago and have still had a few more blisters pop up in between my fingers and around the original sites of the blisters on my fingers. Although it minimized the pain in my hands and feet initially, the itching and blisters are not acceptable and I think that the chest pain would have increased as it did while taking Vimovo.

    Scarlett on Oct, 2, 2012:

    I was taking Cymbalta for lower back pain and depression. I had previously been on Cymbalta but had quit taking it due to expense. I found a savings online so printed it off and and started taking Cymbalta again. After taking it approximately a little more than a month I was at the lake when my hands started burning as if they had been burned. The burning was so intense I had to get out of sun. Later that evening a blister started on my hand just above my index finger. Then a couple of days later another larger blister appeared on index finger then several areas on hand had blisters popping up. I thankfully seen commercial on tv that stated this could occur and stop taking medication. It has been about 5 weeks and blisters still haven't healed completely and I will have very large scaring from this.
