Does anyone have any experience, I'd mainly like to hear of any good experiences but also not so good, of taking Duloxetine (also known in the US as 'Cymbalta') for anxiety & depression?
I've been on Escitalopram 20mg (also known as Lexapro) for 10 years but in the last year or two it has stopped working. So my psychiatrist has recommended Duloxetine, and that I start 30mg of Duloxetine whilst taking Escitalopram 20mg for one week, then down to 10mg for the next, then just take the Duloxetine.
Has anyone taken Duloxetine for anxiety and/or depression and did it help you? Did you get any troublesome side effects? If you switched from one AD to another, did you take them both together for a few weeks?
Any info and experiences, good and bad, will be welcome.
