Brief Answer: You can stop Cipralex and start Duloxetine. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for your query. As both Cipralex and Duloxetine are serotonin reputake inhibitor, you can stop Cipralex and start Duloxetine. For spondyilitis and chronic neck pain you have to do cervical isometric exercises to maintain the strength of the neck muscles. Neck and upper back stretching exercises, as well as light aerobic activities, also are recommended under the guidance of a physical therapist. I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query. Take care
