Hi @elwoodsdad. You may have noticed I moved your discussion from Just Want to Talk to the Depression & Anxiety in hopes that you can connect with others who take this medication. Just click VIEW AND REPLY in your email and you'll be sent to your post.

That must be frustrating to have so many side effects with this medication.

I wanted to introduce you to fellow Connect members @windwalker @depressionsurvivor and @nansmith as they have mentioned this medication in the past.

I also wanted to share this thread on Trintellix and nausea to see if it can be of any help: https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/trintellix-nausea/

It's great that you will be seeing your doctor tomorrow. How long were you on duloxetine before switching?

Thanks for getting me properly slotted in order to stimulate response. I was on duloxetine for over 5 or 6 years, or possibly more, and I initiated the discussion about a change with my physician in hopes there was a newer/better bit of pharmacology for my dysthymia, hence the trintillix. Interestingly, I have changed the time of my dosage from first thing in the morning to the last thing at night. Given the half life of trintillix, the negative response is materially less. I am interested to discuss this with my physician. I owe him the courtesy of letting him practice psychiatry, and I am eager to live a less tumultuous life.

Just noticed your question about duloxetine. I took it for 5 or 6 years. I initiated the thought of making a change, believing it to be proactive, as did my doctor. Now much better on Prozac. Amazing what regular sleep does for one. My apologies for my oversight.
