Duloxetene for neuropathy & back pain
Hello all, I wasn’t sure to what extent it’s acceptable to discuss different medications on this forum, so if not allowed no worries. I recently (4 days ago) started taking 20 mg of duloxetene daily, prescribed by my neuro for the burning in my feet and lower back pain. I realize this is a pretty low dose but apparently I’m a slow metabolizer, meaning more subject to side effects. I’ve actually already noticed quite a decrease in my symptoms, which is the good news. The bad news – pronounced unpleasant side effects. Won’t go into a lot of detail about what they are specifically, my question is have others experienced this and do the side effects taper off? I would love to be able to continue on this med but the way it currently makes me feel would render that impossible. Thank you!
