Experience of duloxetine

I have started on a 30mg dose of this, and on Tuesday will move upto a 60mg dose.
Since taking it I feel queasy a lot and my appetite has gone way down. I'm not sure if this is a side effect of the new ones or because I'm coming off my old ads ( mirtazipine) has anyone got any experience of this?

I done the exact same thing by coming off mirtazapine, onto duloxetine at 30mg then 60mg. Mirtazapine does make you eat a lot, especially carbs so coming off the mirtazapine will give you a reduced appetite. I've got on fine with the duloxetine :-)

How long have you been on it? I'm enjoying the smaller appetite. Did you feel sick on it?

I lost my appetite on it too & felt really tired. I only lasted 2 weeks on it. Sertraline has been the best for me with the least side effects.
