Is there a generic version of Cymbalta 60mg yet?

Posted by @apportee, Jun 19, 2016

I have been taking Cymbalta 60 my for 3 years. It has worked for me. I picked up my medicine last week, the color of my Cymbalta has changed. I am taking it now and it feel like it is not working. I feel like I am nothing. What could be the problem. There is not a generic for Cymbalta yet, is there?

Hi @apportee. Welcome to Connect. We’re glad you’ve joined our community. I did a quick search on drugs.com and there is a generic for Cymbalta but if you received the correct dose, it should have still been the same color. Can I ask what color the pill was? Also, have you called your prescriber to let them know what’s going on?

I’m tagging @blindeyepug @workwithkids @salena54 @dlady and @bobsconnect who also take Cymbalta. Have any of you experienced the same thing @apportee is describing?

No i havent experienced that. Im slowly self weening myself off of cymbalta. Its really makin more problems for me in regards to sleep n appetite, both of which i already have issues with & cymbalta is making even worse.

Indeed, there is a generic for Cymbalta, it us duloxitine. I have been on Cymbalta for about 6+ years (120mg) it works well. Since generic came out I have been utilizing it. No problems at all…depression/anxiety may run high depending on “life issues” otherwise I see a therapist to help me through those rough spots! No problems with appetite (eat mostly fresh veggies and fruits, chicken and fish). I pray all works out for you!

Hi @ecepassion: I just “googled” generic Cymbalta and yes, there is a generic Cymbalta. It is called Duloxetine.

Thanks for replaying. Yes I talked to the pharmacist today. The generic I was taking was working just fine. Kept my depression down. I felt good. I felt like somebody. They have to order the Cymbalta I was on, I mean the old generic. I will have to pay 15.00$ for the copay, but my husband said that was okay.

I am sorry Cymbalta is having a adverse effect on you. There is so many new anti-depressants. Out there, I am sure they will find the right one for you. Thanks.

Kelsey, the old generic was blue and white. The generic I am taking one is green and yellow. It is just not working for me.

Omg. I have been on Cymbalta for 5 years for my fibromyalgia and have had problems with lack of urination. Commented to my GP, took some tests and they found nothing wrong. I guess it is time to make another appointment. Thank you so much for your input.

On Duloxetine my depression improved and hip pain vanished (arthritis), but I became very quickly irritable and had to stop. Currently I’m taking 20 mg of escipalotram and 2mg of Abilify with marked improvements since adding the Abilify.

I was on Cymbalta for 3 years, the generic brand and it worked for me. The pharmacy I get my med from toyed a new pharmacy company that also made a generic brand of Cymbalta. Well it did not work for me. I became very depress. So my doctor put me on a new med called fetmine. It made me sick. I had a lot of bad adverse reaction. So he stopped it. I am no longer on it. Just waiting for my diastolic blood pressure go down before he start me on something else.

I have taken duloxitine 120 mg. daily for over 6 months now and my mood has improved greatly. I never took anything but generic. My capsule is navy blue and army green. Please note that different dosages of the same medication will be a different color. I have been on every anti–depressant in the book (except the newest drugs, and the MAOI’s?) and I have responded to some but they didn’t last. I actually feel almost normal again on this. I have constipation which has worsened since I’m on duloxitine but I also have IBS so that may be why. Just as a side note, my physician is very good with combining drugs to get an added effect. I’m also on Wellbutrin 200mg in AM and in early afternoon.
