Hi, I've already posted on here that I have been struggling with the duloxetine. I spoke to GP on phone this morning and he has decided to put me up from 60mg to 120mg to see if that helps. The point is, I have gone downhill since starting on it. My mood is worse (or at least different....but not in a good way). And my fibro pains have actually increased in places. He said that after a couple of weeks we will know if it really isn't going to work and I'll have to change medication again.
I'm very apprehensive about taking the higher dose. I told him I had been drinking (it's the only way I have been getting through the days and particularly the nights). I know duloxetine is particulalrly bad to be drinking on, for the liver. I can't see how I'm just going to be able to stop, so I'll be taking a higher dose and alcohol. Also, I know this is an awful drug to withdraw from.
What are other people's experinces on 120mg - did it help when the 60mg didn't? I am very doubtful. Surely there should have been SOME improvement after 2 months. This does not seem right to me.
