Trouble accepting Duloxetine

I take low dose Mst I’m always in pain and in my case I also have an autonomic disease that wreaks havoc with very high and low BP . I’m very nervous after watching You tube info on this drug. Second choice is Gabapantine or Amyltryptin

Any one got personal experience or advice please ? I have chemical sensitivity also

Thank you Marouska

I have found Duloxetine has enabled me to reduce my mst by 25%, and stay near enough on the same level of pain relief. If your consultant has advised Duloxetine, I wouldn't worry too much. about U tube presentations. Your consultants advice is given for your particular symptoms and disease peculiarities.

Everyone is completely different when it comes to responses to medications, and we have to work things out for ourselves. It is not a good idea to get advice from others, but try the med at a low dose, and increase if you feel it is helping you, with guidance from your Doctor. But remember, ultimately, you are in control of your health care.
