Since I started it, I have had gerd. Can anyone help?
Yes and I had horrible withdrawal symptoms coming off it. I was weaned slowly and each decrease I had withdrawal symptoms
Try to stay away from chewing gum and mints. Anything peppermint. Peppermint will relax the cardiac sphincter that holds the top of the stomach closed and allow you to burp, but also allow stomach acid to ascend. Alcohol also is bad for GERD. Elevate the head of your bed slightly with an old pillow under your mattress and don't lay down after eating. Are you taking PPIs or just using TUMS or Gaviscon? These are over the counter products. I have never heard of Cymbalta causing GERD but it might have something to do with the drugs ability to produce dopamine, and most dopamine is made in your stomach? Check with Pharmacist and your doctor.
