Hi All, Do anyone take duloxetine for their fibromyalgia?

Wondered if anyone else has tried Duloxetine?

@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.
