Duloxetine - How long does it take to treat GAD?

Posted , 2 users are following.

I have been taking Duloxetine, 90 mg for 4 weeks. I started it at 20 mg four months ago and increased to 30 mg, 60 mg, and now 90 mg. I still have anxiety symptoms daily. If Duloxetine helped your anxiety, how long did you feel back to normal since you started the Duloxetine? and what dosage?

    duloxetine is poison A pill is going to help your anxiety you need too find out what causes your anxiety and then work on it. FOR me CbT DbT And mindfulness for chronic pain. USE coping skills. I JUST saw un you tube one dr say avoid duloxetine if you have crps after 6 weeks on duloxetine my liver AlT WENT TO 700. Im in constant pain im seeing e my doctor tomorrow and see if he can prescribe me LDN IVE basically eliminated my low mood with changing thiughts and behaviours and stay in the wise mind territory. I suffer everyday with pain but now i have a better understanding of it and what to do its all to do with brain your gut and nervous system its about calming it down

      Jan, thank you for your advice.

      I just wanted to ask people who got back to "normal" because of taking Cymbalta, how long and dosages. I am just impatient.
