Duloxetine - when best to take

Postby Crazygirl » Tue Jul 03, 2012 10:53 am

When is it best to take Duloxetine? I have been on it for a week now and have tried taking it in the morning (as per the pharmacist) and at night (my doctor said take anytime) and I'm lucky if I can sleep for more than 3/4 hours with plenty of waking up in between. I also feel drowsy in the daytime. Will this wear off? Any advice greatly appreciated.

When i was first given duloxetine for depression 5 years ago, I took it at night and did not sleep for the whole night. I then developed anxiety and insomnia for the following week. I collapsed and was taken into hospital and the anxiety never went away. I had a terrible experience with Duloxetine and they said i had had an allergic reaction to it so it may be that you are unable to take it. Not sure.

HI
Everyone is different but i found when i first started taking mine in the mornings i was feeling more fatigued & dizzy & spaced throughout the day out so i changed it to evenings and found this much better as i was able to sleep or was laying down throughout the stages of having the side effects.

My side affects have worn off now but i have still kept to taking them of an evening.

They can take up to 4 weeks to fully kick into your system & side affect can last for a couple of weeks. :facepalm:
