Have nerve pain. On dulexetine HCL, imrest. Suggest?

Hi Sam, my name is Monica, Western Australia. I have been commenced on duloxetine HCL, and due to having 4/24 sleep in 40hrs, I have been commenced on Imrest (7.5mg zopliclone). Have been commenced on duloxetine for nerve pain from work injury. I cant seem to find any interactions noted about the 2 drugs. If you could would be most appreciative. Regards Monica
