  • Take Cymbalta by mouth as directed by your healthcare provider, usually 1 or 2 times a day with or without food.
  • Swallow the capsule whole and do not crush, chew, break, or open it. Doing so can affect how well your body absorbs the drug, potentially increasing the risk for side effects or reducing its effectiveness.
  • Take the medication regularly at the same time(s) each day to get the most benefit from it.
  • Follow all directions on your prescription label and read all medication guides or instruction sheets. Your healthcare provider may occasionally change your dose.

  • If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember. However, if it's almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and take the next dose as scheduled.
  • If you experience nausea, taking the drug with food may help.

  • Do not take two doses at once to make up for a missed dose.

The dosage of Cymbalta is typically based on your age, medical condition, and response to treatment. Your healthcare provider may direct you to start the medication at a low dose and gradually increase it to reduce the risk of side effects.

The recommended dosage for treating fibromyalgia or long-term pain in adults is 60 mg once per day. However, the initial dose may be 30 mg once per day, with a potential increase to 60 mg based on your healthcare provider's assessment.
