4 weeks then everything smoothed out. My doc recoemmnded that I move to 60 mg. Is there an adjustment period from 30mg to 60 mg?
Hello Jessie and welcome to DC. Just remember YOU have the final say in what you are taking and HOW MUCH you want to take. I'm just giving you some food for thought... if you feel so much better at 30mg now, do you feel you need to go higher right at the moment??? You can always go up at any time but is your doctor giving you an option to increase to 60mg or stay where you are??? Do you think you could be feeling much better or maybe want to hangout at 30mg to see how you feel in a few more weeks???
But to directly answer your question, every body is different. However, I believe you have gotten through the roughest patch because you are familiar with the symptoms. I personally didn't notice any adjustment going from 30 to 60. I DID have a more difficult time when I was up to 120mg. I didn't stay there real long either. I was able to tapper back down to 90 then to 60mg and that is where I stayed for years...
I wish you well and hope the rest of your journey is smooth and totally uneventful. There is a reason the body needs to adjust to medications but sometimes retaliates against them, too. I prefer the "less" is better mode of operation.

Cymbalta - I've been taking Duloxetine for 20 days. At first I had a few side affects. Nothing major
