  • 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.
