Cymbalta (Duloxetine) belongs to the class of medications called selective serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor antidepressant (SSNRI). It is used to treat depression and generalized anxiety disorder. It can also be used to treat diabetes related nerve pain, fibromyalgia, chronic low back pain, and chronic pain from osteoarthritis of the knee. For depression, it works by affecting the chemicals in the brain that may become unbalanced and cause depression. For certain types of pain, it affects the balance of chemicals in the brain and spinal cord that are involved in the experience of pain. The most prescribed dose for Cymbalta is 60 mg administered once daily.
We currently have the brand from Turkey by Boehringer Ingelheim and Eli Lilly. The generic Duloxetine is also called Duzela manufactured in India by Sun Pharma. It may come from other suppliers. Cymbalta is available in tablets of 20 mg, 30 mg, 40 mg, and 60 mg strengths.
