Last year I was admitted to hospital with serotonin syndrome, after only taking 2 days of citalopram (an SSRI). My pain clinic are suggesting that I take Duloxetine (an SNRI) to see if it would have any effect on my pain levels. I've had chronic pain for 4 years now and have tried various treatments. I am very reluctant to take it, I don't want a repeat of last years episode. I've spoken to a couple of pharmacists and each one has given me a different opinion, one says it will be fine and the other says do not take it. Any thoughts?
