    Ive been given it, started last week on 30mg then start the 60mg dose on Sunday. Going better than I thought but still not feeling great as it takes a couple of weeks to get into the system!
    Hope it goes well for you

    Re: duloxetine

    Hi Emma I was prescribed duloxetine 60mg. I took it for about a month. I experienced severe side effects nausea vomiting and giddiness. The plan was to wean me onto duloxetine first and then reduce the prothiaden that I was already on. I'm also on lithium. I had high hopes for this drug but it didn't work for me. I felt over medicated. In the female sense if affected sexual performance (it is not just the men who suffer) It is an snri and works differently to ssris. I wasn't allowed to continue with it. I hope it works well for you. You should feel the benefits in four to six weeks.
