Oramorph Does It Work For Back Pain ?

Hi Ive just made the BIG mistake of insisting on going to what we have in Scotland called a Pain Management clinic

Does Anyone Have Experience Of Taking Duloxetine?

Does Anyone Have Experience Of Taking Duloxetine?

I suffer from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia, amongst other things, but I'm in the process of changing over from an antidepressant that I've been taking for 27 years, for anxiety and depression. Im changing from Clomipramine to Duloxetine because Duloxetine, as well as being an antidepressant, apparently helps with chronic pain. I wondered if anyone on here has experience of either, changing over, and/or taking Duloxetine? I'd appreciate any information you can give me. Thank you.
