Pain Depression and Duloxetine


#1

I suffer from abdominal pain and was diagnosed with inguinal left sided hernia.

A repair was done but the pain remains

My pain specialist prescribed Gabapentin and I took this in increased dosage over 6 months.

It had peculiar side effects with little effect on the pain.

I read, I think it was on the M Fox website, that Duloxetine was being researched as being beneficial to people with Parkinson's it also had pain relief properties.

My pain specialist prescribed this and within 3 weeks the pain subsided, my mood was lifted ( Duloxetine is mainly prescribed for depression) and was generally more active.

Anyone else tried this or any other comments for or against?
