Any drug that affects levels of nuerotransmitters (any anti-depressant) takes at least a couple of weeks for your system to get used to. Unless you are having really bad side effects that you just can't handle or the medication advice leaflet advises you should tell your Doctor about, I personally would stick with it at least a couple of weeks. This is from experience of taking countless meds over this journey. I have often found that the helpful ones only really became helpful after my body got used to them.

This is only my opinion though, and I would not want to be making light of your side effects - I know only too well how uncomfortable it can be.

Hello, I've been on Duloxetine for 9 months. First two weeks I had manic overload, then settled down and a huge reduction in pain and increase in energy and wellbeing, depression was down. I suffered with anorgasmia for a few months but my body adjusted to it and now I'm glad to report that I can even have multiple ones now :lol:

If you can handle the initial side effects it's alright in the long term.

Hi I take Duloxetine for depression. Does anybody suffer with really bad nitemares and hot sweats at night. I am on a lot of medication for R.A. & Fibro and have cut down to try and see what is causing the nitemares and hot sweats and think it could be the Duloxetine. Please advise if anybody else suffers too x
