Side Effects with taking Cymbalta

Patient: I am on my 5th day of Cymbalta and I am noticing a delay in achieving an orgasm. Is this side effect of the medication temporary?

 

 

Doctor: This is a common side effect experienced by ~ 10% of users. It may improve worsen or stay the same. 5 days is not enough time to decide. If there are no other side effects, I suggest a minimum 6 week trial before deciding if the side effect is tolerable or not.
