  • My side effects from Cymbalta were so horrific, physical and psychiatric that I attempted to sue Eli Lilly back in the end of 2016 beginning of 2017. I found a few attorneys that were considering taking my case. I wasn’t Physically or mentally well enough then to Submit my information to the attorneys. By 2019 I was well enough to begin the process, by that time I found out it was too late to file a lawsuit. No attorneys in the US were taking cases. Eli Lilly and big pharma are too wealthy and powerful to touch and get away with destroying people’s lives and causing people to commit suicide and ruining their physical health that people die of the physical damage to internal organs or die early because of the physical side effects.

  • Mr. McNeil. Thank you for sharing Abraham’s story. Big pharmaceutical and many but not all psychiatric’s are to blame for this. I had horrific physical and psychiatric side effects and withdrawal side effects. While on Cymbalta and when my psychiatrist failed to slowly wean my off Cymbalta that I was taking for Fibromyalgia and depression. I had suicide ideation, a suicide attempt, psychosis and paranoia. I finally found a board certified psychiatrist who diagnosed me with Cymbalta Discontinuation Syndrome. Stating these psychiatric side effects could last for months. I checked myself into a psychiatric hospital twice once after a suicide attempt and once with suicide ideation. I had an episode of my paranoia and ended up in a psychiatric hospital diagnosed with psychosis. Months later I had another paranoia/psychosis episode and was admitted to a psychiatric hospital, this time diagnosed with Schizophoaffective disorder. I told the psychiatrist I was diagnosed with Cymbalta discontinuation syndrome and that the paranoia and psychosis was a side effect of Cymbalta. Unfortunately, I had moved to another state and didn’t have a hard copy of my diagnosis. And when I went back to find the psychiatrist who diagnosed me. She had moved out of state and I could not locate her. I refused to say I was schizophroaffective. So I had to have court ordered antipsychotic medication injections for a year. Then one year of oral antipsychotic medication. I finally found a new psychiatrist who weaned me off the antipsychotic medication. Said I am not schizophroaffective and wrote a letter stating that. It’s too late to sue for a misdiagnosis. What happened to me was an atrocity.
