I was prescribed this on Tuesday, 30mg to start with. However I have been feeling quite drowsy and dizzy and have spent most of the last 2 nights awake for 3/4 hours at a time. I'm not sure if this medication is any good for me. I have also read alot about this since I was given it and have heard a lot of horror stories. Does anyone find it helps and am I feeling like this because it's a new drug to me.
Duloxetine: I was prescribed this on... - Fibromyalgia Acti...
Hi, I find with Duloxatine it is best to take them at the same time every morning - AFTER/ALONG WITH food. I eat more at that point than I used too as it’s the only way I don’t get too dizzy or confused.
Saying that, along with Gabapentin I have not had as much relief from FM ever. It’s the best I have tried and do I live with the side effects (although they do get easier) to enjoy the relief from the pain of FM.
If I don’t eat well enough along with my Duloxatine I do get very dizzy. The staying awake has now gone after a couple of months.
Hi, I am on Duloxetine 60mg and am absolutely fine on it.
I have been on it for 2 years. I started on 30mg which didn’t do anything for me.
I haven’t had any side affects, it doesn’t
stop the pain, but it lifts ones mood and
help me to cope with life.
I realise that medication effects everybody
differently it’s a matter of trying to find
what suits you.
Wish you luck.
Morning, I am on one tablet I take at night 60mg, I cannot remember any side effect s for me personally but was so grateful to have my old self back as it is used for anxiety as well as pain and mine had hit the roof , I have been on this for over two years it certainly stopped the anxiety 100 percent, I think the horror stories I read seem to be when people are weaned off the tablet. If you’ve any concerns speak to your surgery sometimes side effects can tail off once they are in a person’s system again this is only what I’ve been told when starting new tablets for other things by my doctor.
