Did You Know? That You Can Now Get "Pregabalin" Through Your Doctor Then Collect It Over The Counter? Well, You Can In New Zealand.

The last time I tried Pregabalin it was through my specialist and I needed a special authority number this could take weeks or even months, this resulted in me going through tremendous painful and agonizing withdrawals because it just took too long to go through all of the right channels. (3 months it took! I was told only a week or two)

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.
