Duloxetine is a selective serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor, meaning that it increases the amount of serotonin and norepinephrine in the brain. Serotonin and norepinephrine are two of the molecules that allow brain cells to communicate. For reasons that are not fully understood, raising serotonin and norepinephrine levels is effective in treating major depressive disorder and anxiety disorder. This drug is also used for treating neuropathic pain caused by diabetes, fibromyalgia, and pain of unknown origin in the muscles and bones.
