No Appetite on Duloxetine?

I've been on Duloxetine aka cymbalta before. I remember not having a crazy appetite but still being able to eat. I don't know what it is now, but I went back on it a few days ago and I have no appetite. I haven't eaten much in almost two full days. My stomach hurts like I know I need to eat. But the appetite isn't there and I feel really gaggy when I try to eat anything..
