Hi,

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:-
Dizziness
Drowsiness
Nausea/vomiting
Dryness in mouth
Alteration in bowel movement
Pain in the stomach
Dark coloured urine
Yellowness in eyes
Tiredness

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.

Regards

Hi XXXXXXX,
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.
Thanks.

Hello! I have been vaping for about 4 months. I have Fibromyalgia, severe neck and back pain, I get spasms, have trouble sleeping, excessive tiredness and difficulty with concentration. I take zanaflex, cymbalta, carbatrol and lyvoxerine(thyroid med). I have been wondering if you would know about the good effects of nicotine? I do feel some of my meds may be able to be lessened since vaping. I will be talking to my docs about this when I see them but was also curious if this has been a common question lately?

Hello, I have a 25 year old Special Needs daughter that has ben having Grand Mall Seizures for the last three years. she was seizure free for almost 2 years while on 100mg of Lamotrigin however in July of 2013 (no triggers)she started them again and her Lamotrogin has been increased to the maximum 400 mg per day over three weeks ago. She had two GMS on May 18 and now her Dr.wants to add Valporic Acid to her daily meds. She is also on Dexadrin, Ambilify and Cymbalta. My question is , is all off these meds. safe for her to take at the same time? And is there some kind of surgery that is available for people with GMS?

i'm 46 yrs old, 5'7", 170#. i am suffering what i think is a side effect of medication: i feel an urgent need to urinate (as in trotting to the bathroom, struggling to hold my bladder). but once i reach the toilet, it drips out. (my bladder is full, just nothing comes out).
i believe it is a side effect of adderall and/or cymbalta.
what can i do to alleviate this?
