I was prescribed lexapro 12 months ago and i had constant headaches. I was put on cymbalta this week. I still have headaches. When will they ease off?
A small percentage of people have significant problems with headaches as a side effect of these medications. When the medication is discontinued the headaches go away if they were due to the medicine.
If the medication is continued, sometimes headaches will diminish over the course of the first few weeks of treatment, and sometimes lowering the dosage can help manage them.
