Hi All, Do anyone take duloxetine for their fibromyalgia?

I'm coming of citalopram and going on Duloxetine next week.

Wondered if anyone else has tried Duloxetine?

Duloxetine (Cymbalta) - anyone have any experience?

@113dadsgirl113 sorry for the late response. I initially did not understand the medication you wrote and googled it and say it was the generic name for the trademark brand Cymbalta. I just started this medication - currently on 30 mg for 2 weeks and to increase to 60 mg after.

If you would not mind sharing how the medication has been working for you? Any benefits? How many mg?

Also, I was on lexapro also prior to my diagnosis - but while I was in pain - for depression/anxiety, and I did not feel it helped me at all for pain.

Hope to hear from you. Thank you and hope all is well.

It has helped me with the musculoskeltal joint pain. I take 60 mg a day.
