I had breast cancer in 2006 and a lumpectomy followed. Three months later I started a course of radio therapy. I told the consultant that I had been having a trying time at home, On top of it all my mother was in the early stages of dementia and my son who was 18 at the time was playing up by staying out all night sometimes and really worrying me. I told the consultant this but it was really the radio therapy that was making me feel depressed so I was put onto Citalopram. Twelve years later I was put onto Duloxetine by the pain clinic which I'd been transferred to from hospital because of spinal stenosis. To this day I am on Duloxetine but I don't know why. It was only when I had breast cancer and radio therapy that made me feel depressed as I'm not that sort of person normally. Has anyone any advice please?
