Thanks for writing your query.

Duzela contains Duloxetine which is a serotonin norephinephrine reuptake inhibitor and is used mostly for depression, anxiety and to treat nerve pain in diabetes. Some benefit although not confirmed is also seen in urinary incontinence.

Side effects of Duzela are many including following:-
Dryness in mouth
Alteration in bowel movement
Pain in the stomach
Dark coloured urine
Yellowness in eyes

You should consult your treating doctor as he can judge the ratio of benefit over side effects (risk reward ratio) and can plan your dosage and treatment.

I hope this is helpful to you. If you have any further queries, I will be happy to help.

I have one more question regarding dipression and anxeity tables

since five years I have been having dipression and anxeity tablets (Nexito 10, Fluvoxin 100 mg, Milnage, maxigline and so on), my question is whether these type medication is addictive and without these I can't be even one day aslo. So I am very unhappy my life.. please guide me

Thanks for your response.

The medicines you have described are all psychiatry medicines. These medicines are taken for long duration and should not be stopped without tapering and without medical advice. As they cause some chemical changes in the body, it is slightly difficult to stop them abruptly as it can result in withdrawal symptoms, so it seems to the patient that they are addictive.

I would suggest you that you should discuss either with your treating doctor or with a good Psychiatrist for the continuity of so many medicines.

Also, have a positive approach towards life. Do yoga and meditation. Consult a behavior therapist for guidance that can be helpful to you.

I hope this is helpful to you. If you have any further queries, I will be happy to help.

Please advise.

i have been diagnosed with serotonin syndrome...have taken cymbalta and found out I do to have the enzyme 2d6 which is the only enzyme that breaks down cymbalta. I have a range of symptoms...most overwhelming being the fluctuating bp and heart rate. I have been told bed rest mild sedation and lots of liquids the only treatment.

I have been noticing tiny bubbles in my urine for the past couple of weeks. During this time, I ran out of my blood pressure meds and went about 8 days before getting the refill. During that time I gained about 8 lbs water weight. My hands and feet were swelling and also in the am my eyes were very puffy. At the end of the day I really had no ankles due to the swelling there. I have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, however it does not explain my blood work which showed the blood antigens were high and also the inflamation. At first they thought I had Lupus, but not enough symptoms to confirm, so I was told that I do not have lupus but I do have fibromyalgia. Since then I have noticed on a couple of occations that I have had ranauds symptoms in my toes. I have also noticed a very faint redness across my nose and in my cheek area under my eyes, but no redness around my eyes (I kinda look like a racoon with white eyes). I am currently taking Lyrica and Cymbalta along with my Lisinopril/Hctz. I guess my question is could this new symptom with the bubbles in the urine be an indicator that I do have Lupus?
