to quote the package insert "Patients and their families should be encouraged to be alert to the emergence of anxiety, agitation, panic attacks, insomnia, irritability, hostility, ..."
and report them to your pdoc.

Also "Duloxetine should be swallowed whole and should not be chewed or crushed, nor should the contents be sprinkled on food or mixed with liquids. All of these might affect the enteric coating."

So, my suggestion might be that maybe you could take 40mg or 50mg by getting a prescription for the 20mg capsules. That way you could avoid the whole problem with the enteric coating. 40mg is considered a theraputic dose.

I'm so interested in how you are doing on this because it totally made me go hypomanic (almost manic). You don't have any history of Bipolar do you? Well, I hope it works out for you. I think it's a really potent drug.
Good luck,
