Yes, I have. I had been on Cymbalta 120 mg which is a very high dosage, but it was winderful for my fibromyalgia. I was also on sleep meds like Ambien, Klonopin and Zanzflex. My docs here think that when I had a neck blocjk the steriolds oin it made the Serotonin Syndrome Happen. Sorry about the spelling, as I cant get the backsoace to work and my brain is still in a mess….only beemn 5 weeks since diagnoisis and complete change of meds!

checking in with you to see if you are doing better..I sure hope so……I am just going along about the same ……did you have an experience with Tinnitus(ringing in the ears) from the cymbalta…….I am trying to survey a few people that may have had that happen to them……this is one of the things I am going thru and it is not good..I will keep you in my prayers that you get better and hope you have recovered already
