Hi, I thought I would share my experience with Duloxetine anti depressants.
My specialist put me on Duloxetine 60 mg per day ,2 years ago, for the pain , at first they worked fine, but without really realizing it, I started to become really depressed,crying a lot,,anger problems,mood swings, the only way I can describe it, is like a really bad doses of pre menstral tention PMT. I started to feel there was no point in continuing with this life.
Now anyone who knows me, would be shocked by this last statement, because this is just not me at all, normally always happy, and positive.
Severe depression I here you say, yes I thought I was going mad. Then I read somewhere about anti depressants and how they can make you more depressed , so this made me start to think. I also was piling on weight for no reason.
So I decided to cut down on my medication just to see if I improved. Having read on the web the dangers of stopping this type of medication quickly, I decided to open my capsules and decrease the amount each week by counting the little white beads inside,, I am now on half dose, feeling ok and with no adverse side effects. Has anyone else experienced these symptoms on Duloxetine?
