Cymbalta side-effects: how long should I put up with this nausea?

I started taking 30 mg/day of Cymbalta just over a week ago to help with pain from nerve damage, and am having issues with nausea. The literature tells me this is common, and I'm seeing some suggestions that this may be temporary, but I'm wondering how long it will take until I know? The general nausea isn't as bad as it was the first few days, but I still have quite a bit of trouble when I'm driving, and I have a long commute. Also, I'm scheduled to step up to a 60 mg dosage next week, and am wondering if this is going to be a problem. I will, of course, speak with my doctor if this continues, but I know there are other MeFites out there who have been on this medication, and I was wondering if any of you had experience with this issue, and if you could offer any advice on how long it took you to determine the extent of your problem? Thanks in advance.
