Duloxetine Awareness Just About Killed Me

Posted , 3 users are following.

I was prescribed Duloxetine 60 mgs This drug could have killed me.  I am the 1 % that gives adversed reaction that could cause death.  I'm warning any thanking this drug after 6 weeks have your blood ALT and AST tested. I was having all kinds of symptons. My ALT shot up past 700.  Now I discontinued this drug and paying the price with bad withdrawl symptoms  I can't believe there is no follow up to this drug. I put in complaint with Health Canada. Drug company sells you a pill that makes you worst than depression but they have no clue on how to fix the problem. Total shame. How many ppl have actually died using this drug is unclear.  Now I'm living in hell cause of all these side effects.  Do not EVER take this drug. I'm the 1% that it really effects real badly.  Increase Liver Enzymes, sweaty head l, hot flashes, sore eyes blurry vision, infected eyes, acid reflux, itchy skin, increase pain, fatigue, worst than feeling depressed, low mood, irritability no patience, sexual dysfunction, very dry mouth, dehydration,  loss of concentration and memory, pressure headaches, bad dreams, insomnia 2-4 hours sleep compared too 14 hours from actually being depressed, no motivation, drink lots of water, diarhia with blood in stool, that's all my symptons from taking one drug. And this is not exaggeration. The doctor at internal medicine told me if I never followed up and continued taking the drug it would of been fatal. Awareness if you suffer from depression and anxiety don't take drugs. Do a IDT program with CBT and DBT.  This drug will make your condition worst.  It will take you off your path for recovery. Believe me.

      It's pathetic that they prescribe this drug to a human and there is no follow up help when someone must stop using this drug as I did as it increased my liver enzyme. Beware people this drug is powerful,and will f**k you up. I can't get any straight answers. Are the side effects short or long term.
