yes cost matters
Thanks for follow up.
Yes you are right in many patients cost matters. In that case with generic patient needs some what higher dose than that of research product to get optimum effect and even after cost is less than that of research product.
So for you if cost matters, she may need somewhat higher dose of duloxetine than that of cymbalta.
