Duvanta 60 MG Description

Duvanta Tablet is a prescription medication primarily used to manage depression and other mood disorders such as anxiety. It is also used to manage diabetic neuropathic pain (nerve pain due to damage

caused by diabetes), stress urinary incontinence, and fibromyalgia (widespread pain in the body). Major depressive disorder or depression is a mood disorder characterised by a feeling of sadness, loss of interest, mood swings, hopelessness and loneliness. Duvanta Tablet contains Duloxetine as an active ingredient. Duloxetine increases certain chemical messengers such as serotonin and norepinephrine, in the brain, which regulates mood energy and lowers the pain caused by nerve damage. Duvanta Tablet should be taken in dosage and duration as advised by your doctor. This medicine should not be taken without consulting a doctor as there are many side effects associated with this medicine. Do not stop consuming this medicine suddenly without consulting your doctor first, as it can cause worsening of your condition or may lead to withdrawal-like symptoms. Tell your doctor and pharmacist what medications, herbal products, vitamins and nutritional supplements you are consuming or plan to take as there is a chance of drug interaction. Many medicines can interact with Duvanta Tablet, making it less effective or increasing the side effects.
