Does Cymbalta Cause Cancer

I had ovarian cancer.And after treatment was left with the bone and joint pain. I have just started cymbalta and I was told I should not worry about any cancer fact. I had rather have pain then to ever think of cancer again.

Answer

Sonya, I'm sorry you've had to go through this. I have not heard of Cymbalta causing cancer and I'm sure if there was a risk of that, your doctor would not have prescribed it. It is often used for pain like that which can occur with depression. I hope you won't worry about it and just focus on feeling better. I hope this improves soon. Thanks for writing here.
