Good Morning Doc, I take 60mg of duloxetine per day.

Good Morning Doc,
I take 60mg of duloxetine per day. This script started a month ago. I was taking 30mg, but my Doc increased it to 60mg last month. My question is, since the increase in dosage, I am experiencing hives in my scalp. Is this a side effect of the increase in dosage?

I ve tried many antidepressents and am now taking Duloxetine 60 MG. I want to try sam-e instead. How long must I be on 30 mg before cutting it out (I am taking 2 30 mg tablets per day) totally, and can I start Sam-e while I am only taking 30 mg. I am going to bed soon. Could you e-mail me your answer using the address below: YYYY@YYYY ? Thanks for helping! I wish all the antidepressants I have tried had worked, but they don t seem to do anything.

My doctor prescribed Duloxetine 30 mg once daily for anxiety. I ve been taking it for several weeks and suddenly have constipation (so embaressing!). I swim laps 3 days a week for about 20 minutes and take water aerobic workout classes 5 days a week. I try and eat lots of salads, no junk food. Can the Duloxetine cause this constipation and if so can I just quit taking it. Thanks
