      I know it might cause liver problems. I just have my blood work. My doctor did not say anything about my liver.

      Hi Larry,

      I feel tired, too. But, I don't know if anxiety caused the tiredness. But, I feel better than before taking the medication.

      How long did you take the Duloxetine? Were you feel back to yourself while you were taking it?

      i was on it a few different times. i was on imipramine at the same time. it was added for pain which causes me anxiety. i was taken off it last year as i started getting shakes. however, since im still feeling the same, dont think that was the cause. it definately helped when i was on it.

      Thank you, Larry. I want to get back to normal badly. I will see my doctor in 2 months. I am thinking whether I should call in to see him earlier.

      Hi Ginger,

      I am on it for 6 months already. I had some improvement. I am wondering if someone got back to normal from Duloxetine. I tried a lot of antidepressants, this one does not have many side effects. I plan to use it to get back to normal and then thinking to switch medication later.
