Re: Duloxetine

jj:
I suspect there are a great many others who would be very interested in your remarkable experience with duloxetine. I would encourage you to share your results with the "Ed and Incontinence Post-treatment" group on the following Pca website: http://prostatecancerinfolink.ning.com/
If you are not interested in following up on this suggestion,with your permission, I would like to so.
Anyone interested in the potential side effects of this medication need only to enter its name on GOOGLE.

Re: Duloxetine

Hi Don,
Thanks for the heads up on the weblink. I have joined and am awaiting approval. I am happy for you or anyone else to tell my duloxetine story to anyone and everyone. Since the medics have yet to run trials on men it would be interesting to anecdotally find out from other sufferers if my life changing turnaround is experienced by others. I hope so! My two years of incontinence sucked.

Re: Duloxetine

jj - This is amazing and interesting. Do you think it has also had any effect on your attitude? The main use of this drug you said was for depression which many of us suffer from after contracting and treating this disease. It would be great if it would be able to treat both maladies! "Killing two birds with one stone" would be great! Jon.

Re: Duloxetine

Hi

No, I haven't noticed any change in mood apart from joy when my last PSA was undetectable! Apparently the dosage for depression is in the 100's of mg wheras I take 2 by 20 mg daily.

To be fair, my initial exuberance was a little premature. Although much better I still do need to wear 1 thin pad daily for security. It is much better than it was but is not a panacea.

best

John
