Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common type of arthritis. Osteoarthritis affects an estimated 27 million adults throughout the U.S. Not all OA patients suffer from chronic pain (more than 3 months). If you’ve been suffering from chronic osteoarthritis 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.
Wouldn’t you like to live with less chronic osteoarthritis pain? Cymbalta can help.
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.
