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,
