jplumb78 on Apr, 16, 2015:
36 male, cymbalta defiantly enlarges my prostate. It's unfortunate, because I like the medication.
phasthutch on Sep, 16, 2011:
I have taken antidepressants since 1994 with occasional stopping for six months to a year. My depressive episodes have always returned and I have had to start taking antidepressants again. Cymbalta 60 mg has worked well for controlling depressive symptoms. I am now 62 and have noticed over the past five years that when taking the Cymbalta I must also take and alpha blocker and in the past year the BPH reducing medicine Proscar.
I recently stopped taking the Cymbalta again and have also had no symptoms of BPH. I am certain that Cymbalta definitely and all SSRI antidepressants in general contribute to or greatly exacerbate the symptoms of BPH.
