Taking cymbalta and getting violent dreams. Is it safe to stop cymbalta?

My husband takes Cymbalta and has been having a lot of vilot dreams is this caused by the cymbalta? He has hit me not knowing what he was doing and fell out of the bed and now has a big black butt cheek from the fall, he was dreaming that someone was trying to get his wallet and fell out of the bed, he never sleeps good anymore and I am afraid to sleep with him because of the dreams. Should he quit taking the Cymbalta?

General & Family Physician 's  Response
reports of dreams with this drug are rare and have not really been described in the literature. If he is sure that he actually started having dreams at exactly sane period he started the drug, its worth quitting, if not, he should consult his physician first.
Other underlying pathologies could affect dreaming and sleep patterns. Consulting his physician will be a reasonable idea.
Thanks and best regards,
