Duloxetine is a molecule commercialized under the name Cymbalta®. It is a drug that is prescribed primarily for depression, though also occasionally used as an anxiolytic to reduce stress, or to calm pains of the nervous system, particularly in persons with diabetes. This medication is for adult use only, and must be prescribed by a doctor. It should be used for as short a period as possible, as a dependency may develop, and its use should be reduced gradually.
