Hi Jack,

Numbers are not so surprizing when you take into account Lilly sponsored the article. Could be a good drug, very likely better than "Side-Effexor".
With Effexor you don't get any NA benefit until you get to about 200mg. Duloxatin should be a 50/50 effect for Ser. and NA from the first dose.

They had approval from the FDA over a year ago - if I explain the delay Dr. Bob will redirect or cancell this post.
