Just wanted to write a quick post, havent been on here for a very long time but I stop by now and again to read the posts.
I have noticed there are quite a few posts about duloxetine and they are mostly negative, so I just wanted to let you know my experience with it.
I began taking it last year for GAD starting on 30mg going to 60mg.
Yes I had side effects like dizziness, yawning (weirdly), feeling sick and dry mouth but overall it wasnt too bad nothing like the terrible time I had on seroxat!!!
It has changed my life I am able to do so much more and I feel really good. Yes I still have bad days but overall I think its really helped me, everyone is different. I was so nervous before taking it but as what all meds all you can do is try!!

Dear Jen I'm glad that duloxetine works for you. I was one of the people that it didn't work for. My reaction to it was violent and severe. As I have said before I wanted to give it a fair trial but my psychiatrist told me to stop it straight away. It is important to give a balanced view about duloxetine and if you have tried others and it has helped turn your life around well done to you.
