> Considering that Cymbalta is also being marketed for urinary incontinence you`d think this would be a very common side effect, but no one seems to be complaining about it much. Makes you wonder how well it could work for incontinence. I`ve had lots of side effects with Cymbalta, but no bladder problems. Cecilia


In my research last year, I learned that imipramine is the traditional drug used for female incontinence. The particular blend of anticholinergic, alpha adrenergic, antihistaminic, and NE reuptake blockades that imipramine posseses seems to have the most favorable overall effects on female urinary function that is being compromised by incontinence. I think all Cymbalta has going it for it in this area is its blockade of NE reuptake--I'm sure it has some efficacy, but you would think there are cheaper drugs available that would do the same thing. Perhaps Cymbalta has an advantage in its side effect profile, though.
