I take 30 mg and 60 mg so I need to take 2 tablets each day and would like to know if 90 mg tablets will be available soon if at all? Please advise and thanks for your help.
I have a suspicion that that is likely never to happen because of this in the FDA readme: https://www.drugs.com/pro/duloxetine-capsules.html
The relevant quote appears below and is mentioned for all uses and the maximum recommended dose is 120mg per day but they all have the caveat below that indicates none of their studies concluded that doses over 60 mg were worthwhile.
"... Begin treatment at 30 mg for one week, to allow patients to adjust to the medication before increasing to 60 mg once daily. There is no evidence that higher doses confer additional benefit, even in patients who do not respond to a 60 mg dose, and higher doses are associated with a higher rate of adverse reactions".
