Just wondered how many people have used this drug and had any success with treatment.
I’m suffering with bad depression and anxiety and insomnia. Also some derealisation

Hello and good evening.
I was put on duloxetine back in 2017. I had previously been on venlafaxine but they took me off venlafaxine because it was making me sweat profusely. So they tapered off the venlafaxine and introduced duloxetine. I was only on duloxetine for a very short time because it was causing nausea.

To be honest, I felt good, mentally, on venlafaxine, but the sweating was affecting my self-confidence/self-esteem.

Hello

For me, Cymbalta ( Doloxetine) was horrible.
It caused something like “auditory hallucination” (i’m not psychotic). It also made my dissociation worse (I suffer dissociation and a bit of depersonalization)
I ended up at ER.
