... Duloxetine the generic. I really want to know when i take the first dose, how long is the normal time to see any side affects.. i think i read the half life is 12 hours, and read somewhere that it takes 4-6 hours to know if there are side affects from the first dose. Trying to prepare myself..very apprehensive about taking it. Thanks in advance
I think it depends, I've read of people taking 2-3 days. Me personally (I just started cymbalta 3 days ago) and I had symptoms 20-30 mins after taking it and they were miserable(some possibly could have been a panic attack though) and after 48 hours I have seen a number of the "common" symptoms and some that I have never heard about (jaw clenching, very minor toungue swelling, toungue numbness). Whatever you do don't psyche yourself out before you take it like I did because it made me feel like I was going to die when I first took it because I was expecting to have all these crazy serious reactions and my body made me think I was having them. You will probably get a few but they really aren't too bad, if you have health anxiety though they may cause some worry but stay positive!
