What are the side effects of 'DUZELA' ? (duloxetine hydrochloride)?
does this drug have any negative effect on your blood profile? esp. lowering of platelet count? or for that matter on body muscles, and does it cause fatigue in the patient too?
Asked by Migdalia Gamache 3 months ago.
these are the same thing. check the link. Cymbalta side effects Side effects cannot be anticipated. If any develop or change in intensity, tell your doctor as soon as possible. Only your doctor can determine if it is safe to continue using Cymbalta. Side effects may include: Appetite changes, constipation, diarrhea, dizziness, dry mouth, fatigue, headache, insomnia, nausea, sexual difficulties, sleepiness, sweating, tremor, urinary difficulties, vomiting, weakness --------------------------------------... Why should Cymbalta not be prescribed? You will not be able to use Cymbalta if it causes an allergic reaction. In addition, you should not take Cymbalta if you have uncontrolled narrow-angle glaucoma, a disease that causes increased pressure in the eyes. Never combine Cymbalta with an MAO inhibitor such as Marplan, Nardil, or Parnate (see "Most important fact about Cymbalta"). Do not take the drug thioridazine (Mellaril) with Cymbalta, as it could cause fatal heartbeat irregularities. --------------------------------------... Special warnings about Cymbalta In clinical studies, antidepressants increased the risk of suicidal thinking and behavior in children and adolescents with depression and other psychiatric disorders. Anyone considering the use of Cymbalta or any other antidepressant in a child or adolescent must balance this risk with the clinical need. Cymbalta has not been studied in children or adolescents and is not approved for treating anyone less than 18 years old. Additionally, the progression of major depression is associated with a worsening of symptoms and/or the emergence of suicidal thinking or behavior in both adults and children, whether or not they're taking antidepressants. Individuals being treated with Cymbalta and their caregivers should watch for any change in symptoms or any new symptoms that appear suddenly--especially agitation, anxiety, hostility, panic, restlessness, extreme hyperactivity, and suicidal thinking or behavior--and report them to the doctor immediately. Be especially observant at the beginning of treatment or whenever there is a change in dose. Some medical conditions require careful monitoring during treatment with Cymbalta. Be sure to tell the doctor if you have diabetes, glaucoma, high blood pressure, or a seizure disorder. Cymbalta can cause episodes of mania (abnormally high feelings of excitement and energy), so be sure the doctor is aware if you have this condition. Using Cymbalta is not recommended if you have liver problems or severe kidney disease. Like other antidepressants, Cymbalta can cause drowsiness and affect judgment or motor skills. Use caution when driving, operating dangerous machinery, or participating in hazardous activities until you know how the drug affects you. --------------------------------------... Possible food and drug interactions when taking Cymbalta Never take Cymbalta with MAO inhibitors (see "Most important fact about Cymbalta") or the drug thioridazine (Mellaril). Consult your doctor first before taking drugs that act on the central nervous system, such as antipsychotics, narcotic painkillers, sleep inducers, or tranquilizers. Due to the possibility of liver damage, do not take Cymbalta if you use alcohol more than occasionally. If Cymbalta is taken with certain other drugs, the effects of either could be increased, decreased, or altered. It is especially important to check with your doctor before combining Cymbalta with the following: Antibiotics known as quinolones, such as Cipro, Floxin, and Trovan Antidepressants known as tricyclics, including Elavil, Pamelor, and Tofranil Antidepressants that raise serotonin levels, such as Effexor, Paxil, Prozac, and Zoloft Antipsychotic medication known as phenothiazines, including Compazine, Prolixin, Serentil, Thorazine, and Trilafon Flecainide (Tambocor) Fluvoxamine Propafenone (Rythmol) Quinidine Answered by Erlinda Borowik 3 months ago.

Venlafaxine is generic Effexor. It is a different antidepressant, not a generic of Cymbalta. Cymbalta, if I recall right, does not have a generic yet. Both Effexor and Cymbalta are in the same class of med, but Effexor is a harder hitter, in my opinion, and it comes with harsher withdrawals. Personally, I'd tell your insurance no, and get your doc to back you on that. I'd most definitely do this if Cymbalta has been effective for you! Since they are different medications, you should be able to get your insurance to go along. Answered by Cherelle Corbley 3 months ago.

Asked by Pablo Timar 3 months ago.
Should be fine. Duloxetine hydrochloride (Cymbalta) is extensively metabolized with a half life in the 12 hour range. Even if you still had blood levels of the protein bound drug, a little dehydration should not cause any major problems for you. Answered by Avery Helgeson 3 months ago.
Do a sauna once a week for the rest of your life, then you will not need any med. You can celebrate whenever and wherever you are, especially your existence! I can't give any medical advice. I don't know what 'Cymbalta' is. I am not a health professional. So my advice can't be taken seriously and so has no value at all. This is stated that you don't sue me for any of the changes in your personality which might occur because the value of your established measurement shifted to another level due to the practice of meditation (NOT medication) or other noncommercial activities.

Does Effexor xr or cymbalta contain MAOIs?
or what type of antidepresants contain MAOis?
Asked by Tashia Bethers 3 months ago.
efexor (venlafaxine) contains the active ingredient venlafaxine hydrochloride, while Cymbalta contains duloxetine hydrochloride. Both are a type of antidepressant known as a serotonin and noradrenaline reuptake inhibitor (SNRI). This type of medicine acts on nerve cells in the brain. If you are taking any anti depressants which are MAOI's, you must stop taking them at least 14 days before you begin a course of SNRI's. MAOI's (e.g. Nardil, Parnate) This group has been around as long as the Tricyclic Antidepressants. For those who cannot tolerate or have been unsuccessful with other antidepressants, MAOI's may be the best pharmacological intervention. However, there are potential dangerous interactions with a number of foods and medications. They contain a chemical called tyramine, which can raise blood pressure if it is not destroyed before it reaches the bloodstream. Many of the foods to be avoided are high in protein such as cheese, hard sausages (pepperoni, salami) or pickled herring. Also several varieties of wine and beer (but not distilled liquor) must be avoided. In addition, this drug should not be taken with pseudoephedrine (Sudafed), diet pills containing Dexatrim and most other antidepressants. Possible side-effects include lowered blood pressure, sexual dysfunction, weight gain, sedation, dry mouth and constipation. Answered by Jodi Latos 3 months ago.

Is it safe to take 150mg of Wellbutrin XL and 60mg of Cymbalta together? ?
(150mg Bupropion hydrochloride & 60mg duloxetine HCI) If prescribed by a doctor? I'm just researching a prescription to see what others have to say.
Asked by Ivey Devany 3 months ago.
The chemical make of the two medications are different. This might confuse you but please hang in with me. Wellbutrin is of the aminoketone class. Cymbalta is a selective serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (SSNRI). These are two different classes of antidepressants. Ok - if you are worried about the doses. Cymbalta is proven safe for doses up to 120mg. Wellbutrin XL is proven safe up to 450 mg. There are many times that doctors will prescribe two antidepressants at the same time. The reasons are numerous. Need of more antidepressant effect, need of another uptake receptor medication, need to treat another issue, this list could go on almost endlessly. You doctor is ok in prescribing the two together. Chemically there is no interaction, there is no know side effects of combining the two, they do not target the same receptors in the brain. Answered by Johnie Monarch 3 months ago.
Firstly, you should trust and listen your doctor if he gives you some kind of specific directions, because he more than likely has a very good reason to do so. Secondly, the only interactions Wellbutrin has is with carbamazepine, cimetidine, phenytoin, and phenobarbital, (decreasing their healing effect), as well as with levodopa (increasing its adverse effects). As for Cymbalta -- it has many many interactions with alcohol, drugs, and a few herbal remedies, but Wellbutrin is not one of them. So, trust me when I say you should be just fine.

If your doctor thinks it won't harm you, then I wouldn't worry about it. If you are really worried about it, call your doctor and ask if you can wait a few days. However, anti-depressants stay in your system for several weeks, so you can't simply wait for one to fade completely out before starting another. Answered by Shauna Lambuth 3 months ago.
