If you have chronic low back pain, you are not alone. Up to 85% of adults will experience back pain, including low back pain, at some point in their lives. 2% to 10% of those who experience low back pain still report pain after 3 months, which makes it a chronic condition.
If you’ve been suffering from chronic low back pain, you’ve probably been treating it with pain medication when you begin to feel it worsen. If you’re willing to rethink the way you treat your pain, Cymbalta can help. The chronic low back pain that you feel day in and day out can be managed with Cymbalta once every day.
Wouldn't you like to live with less chronic low back pain?
Do not take Cymbalta if you are now taking or have recently taken a kind of medicine called a monoamine oxidase inhibitor (also known as an MAOI), including the antibiotic linezolid, or if you are taking Mellaril® (also called thioridazine). Taking Cymbalta close in time to these medicines can cause serious or even life-threatening side effects. If you have uncontrolled narrow-angle glaucoma (eye pain due to increased eye pressure), do not take Cymbalta.
Cymbalta is indicated for the management of chronic musculoskeletal pain due to chronic osteoarthritis pain and chronic low back pain.
