Were you looking for information about Duloxetine? Deloxatine is a common misspelling of duloxetine.
Duloxetine hydrochloride (Cymbalta®) is a prescription medication approved to treat depression, peripheral diabetic neuropathy pain, generalized anxiety disorder, fibromyalgia, and chronic musculoskeletal pain (such as arthritis pain or back pain). The medication works to treat depression and anxiety by increasing the levels of certain chemicals in the brain (serotonin and norepinephrine) that can become unbalanced and cause the symptoms of depression and anxiety.
Although it is not entirely clear as to how duloxetine works to treat neuropathic pain, it is thought that it helps to block the nerve pain signals in the spinal cord or brain. Duloxetine comes in a capsule form that is taken once or twice a day. The dosage your healthcare provider prescribes will vary depending on several factors, such as the medical condition you are being treated for, existing medical conditions you may have, and other medications you may be taking.
