Hey!
I was on Duloxetine for a while last year not only for anxiety and depression but fibromyalgia pain. I personally found it didn’t do much for my mental health (though that could be because they now don’t think it is anxiety and depression but something else but that’s another story) it also caused the most horrible night sweats for me.
Personally I could not wait to get off it and back on sertraline which if nothing else limits depressive episodes.

It is worth trying it to see though as I have heard many success stories as well with it

My wife was taking Duloxetine for anxiety and depression but found that it only helped with the depression so had Pregabalin added to her meds for the anxiety. This combination worked for her.

However, the flushing that has already been mentioned is a problem for my wife so she is now being weaned off the Duloxetine so that she can try Mirtazapine.
