I have suffered chronic back pain for over 2 years. This has taken its toll on my mental health. Im 34 but feel 84 most days! I have been taking duloxetine 80mg for over a year. Part for pain and part depression. My mood has worsened of late.
Last week my gp changed ny meds. I was told to take 40mg duloxetine and add 15mg mitrazapine.
I started this last friday. Yesterday i started with very upset stomach which developed into cold sweats, aches, heart racing feeling very anxious. So bad today my gp came out said it was a bug. Iv never had a bug like this before. I did query if it was withdrawl but she said that the 2 anti depressants normally swap over fine.
Can anyone give me advice on this. I dont know if i should just go back to original dose and forget bout new tab. Or should i perservere???
I am very desperate and really struggling.
Thank you in advance.
