Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for your post.

You're right to ask if there are any significant drug-drug interactions before starting a new medication (or supplement, for that matter).

In your case, good news. There aren't any significant interactions between Cymbalta and your successful HIV medications.

I hope this (and the Cymbalta) helps,
