    Duloxetine comes in a slow-release formulation so in theory the time of day it's taken shouldn't make much difference, but in practice it may do so switching to taking it in the AM might work. Duloxetine can be fairly activating initially so if switching doesn't help you may need to take something to help you sleep. Low dose mirtazapine is often used for this, as is trazodone also at low doses.

    Good advice from panic down under

    Are you taking any other medication in the morning?
