You will need to answer a few questions about your health before completing purchase of this item.

  • Duloxetine is used to treat anxiety, depression, and nerve disorders that cause pain including in diabetes
  • Duloxetine is sometimes known by its brand names Cymbalta or Depalta
  • Duloxetine can make you feel dizzy or sleepy, if this occurs you must not drive or operate heavy or complex machinery
  • Duloxetine belongs to a family of medications called serotonin and noradrenaline reuptake inhibitors
  • It is important to read the patient leaflet for a full list of side effects and cautions.

When taken to treat depression, duloxetine works by regulating the levels of serotonin and noradrenaline. These chemicals are responsible for helping to keep your mood level, and can help to ease the low or sad feelings associated with depression. By regulating these chemicals, duloxetine can also help to ease feelings of anxiety.

Duloxetine can also be prescribed to treat the nerve pain associated with diabetes. If the blood sugar levels remain high or are difficult to control, this can lead to a greater risk of damage to the nerves. This damage can lead to pain which may not be controlled by regular pain relief. Duloxetine can relieve this form of pain.

Duloxetine Tablets

Duloxetine is a tablet that should be swallowed with some water. It can be taken with or without food, and is usually taken once a day.

Duloxetine 20mg / 30mg / 40mg / 60mg

The usual dose of duloxetine ranges from 30mg to 60mg each day. Occasionally, the dose can be increased to 120mg daily.

For depression, it is common to start taking 60mg daily. It can take up to four weeks to notice an improvement in your mood.

For anxiety, the starting dose is often 30mg daily. If this does not have the desired effect, the dose can be increased to 60mg daily.

For nerve pain associated with diabetes, it is common to take 60mg of duloxetine daily.

Your response to duloxetine should be assessed by a healthcare professional after two months to see whether duloxetine is suiting you, and if a change to your prescribed dose is required.

Like all medications, duloxetine can have some side effects. The most common side effects include:

  • Nausea (feeling sick)
  • Dry mouth
  • Constipation
  • Blurred vision, feeling tired or dizzy – you must not drive or operate machinery if any of these side effects occur.

Less commonly, some people may notice the following side effects: 

  • Diarrhoea
  • Headache
  • Lack of appetite, stomach ache or indigestion
  • Facial flushing
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Skin tingling
  • Feeling shaky

  • Reduced interest in sex.

These side effects are likely to settle down, but if they persist or become troublesome you should speak to your doctor for further advice.

Note: if you experience worsening of your depression, or have thoughts of suicide, you must speak to a doctor straight away.
