Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic
There is some medical evidence that SSRI
, which is the family of drugs that cymbalta
belongs to, can raise cholesterol
in some persons.
The only way to determine if it is having an effect would be to discontinue the cymbalta but this would then have affect your depression
It would be a case of balancing benefits with risk. You can consider taking medication for the elevated cholesterol if you and your doctor believe that it is necessary.
Lifestyle changes can also help reduce cholesterol, this would include use of fruits and vegetables, high fiber foods , reduce use of fat and exercise.
I hope this helps
