Phil (2 years ago):

Aged 60, Male. A history of Ulcerative Colitis which was thought to have 'burned out' 3 years ago. Prescribed 30mg Cymbalta per day by my consultant for pain control just under 1 month ago. The rectal bleeding started after approx 20 days and is so severe that I may have to stop usage.
