Symbal 30 MG Description

Symbal Tablet is a prescription medicine used for treating anxiety disorder, depression and neuropathic (nerve) pain. It is composed of duloxetine. It belongs to a class of medication called selectiv

e serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs). This medicine increases the levels of specific chemical messengers (serotonin and norepinephrine) in the brain to regulate/maintain mood. It also manages the movement of pain signals to the brain caused by nerve damage. Diabetic neuropathy is nerve damage due to diabetes characterised by a reduced sensation of touch, pins and needles, uncomfortable tingling and burning sensation in limbs. Some common side effects of this medicine include drowsiness, nausea, headache, dizziness, constipation, loss of appetite, dry mouth, increased sweating. However, these side effects are temporary and usually resolve on their own in some time. You should consult your doctor if these do not subside or bother you.
