I suffer from chroic pain due to degenerative disc disease. I am on 30 tabs daily including Morphine capsules and Oramorph liquid. My pain is excrutiating and doc keeps increasing morphine. I get very down on occasions. Doc has given me Duloxetine as he says it is used for Diabetics who suffer chronic pain and it could help both pain and depression symptoms, After reading up on this drug I am afraid to take it. Seemingly it causes sleeplesness (I sleep all the time because of morphine), dizziness, weight loss (I have lost too much weight already as my pain makes me vomit frequently) and hallucinations (I already have them because of morphine). I am also afraid of symptoms if I have to come off this drug. I have enough problems already. I couldn't take any more. Can anyone give me advice on side effects of this drug and effects when withdrawing from it. Half of me says "take the drug" as it might help the pain and the other half says "don't take it in case you end up with more problems than you already have". Anyone any suggestions or has anyone taken this drug who are diabetic. Does it really help pain? Would be grateful for any help. Also is 60mg once daily a high dose? Hope someone can help me.
