.. I started duloxetine a month and a half ago. No side effects at all. Some headache but nothing else. I started on 30mg, after 60, 90, and now for 10 days I'm on 120mg with no side effects. I have seen a bit of improvement..for my mood but very little. I'm still have bad thoughts ..I'm so frustrated after reading other people stories being on this drug for 2 weeks or a month and are back to normal. Why it's not working for me even on 120mg without side effects. I am completely disconnected same as before starting duloxetine.. Any advice please? Should I be hopeful that sth will turn for good? Just be honest..
Antonia1975 Yes if you're taking 2 now for10 days and don't notice any difference you should check with your doctor being your already taking 120mg many people they wait 4 to 6 weeks before they raise it from 60mg to 120 but this still is kind of normal because this medication can take between 6 to 8 weeks to reach a blood level I just think you should be feeling something by now. if it were me I would check with my doctor good luck. Chuck1957 ps there still is a good chance that this will help you because of you are a ways from the 6 to 8-week level but if you can't feel anything it's time to check with the doctor.
