FAQs

Q. How long does Duzela take to work?

In people with depression and anxiety, Duzela mostly starts working within two weeks of treatment. However, you may take 2-4 weeks to feel better. Consult your doctor if you do not see any improvement after this time. In people with diabetic neuropathic pain, you may take a few weeks to feel better. Consult your doctor if you do not feel better after 2 months.

Q. If I start feeling better, can I stop taking Duzela?

No, you should not stop Duzela suddenly and without consulting your doctor. In cases of depression and anxiety, if you have been feeling better for 6 months or more, your doctor may reduce your doses gradually. In case of pain and incontinence, if you are feeling better, continue taking it for long term. Your doctor will keep monitoring your response to the medicine every few months.

Q. Is Duzela highly addictive?

No, Duzela is not habit-forming (addictive). This means that it does not make you physically or psychologically dependent on it.

Q. What will be the consequences if I stop taking Duzela suddenly?

If you stop Duzela suddenly, you may feel dizzy, tired, agitated or restless, anxious and irritated. You may also experience sleep disturbances (vivid dreams, nightmares, inability to sleep), nausea, vomiting, shaking, muscle pain, diarrhea, a piercing sensation (pins and needles) especially in the head and excessive sweating or vertigo. Always consult your doctor before you stop taking Duzela. Your doctor will reduce the dose gradually.

Q. I am taking warfarin, does Duzela interfere with warfarin? Is it safe to take both together?

You should be cautious if you are taking both Duzela and warfarin since there is a risk of bleeding or you may experience petechiae or purpura.

Q. Is Duzela safe to use for long term?

Duzela is safe to use for a long duration, provided you follow your doctor’s advice regarding the treatment.

Q. I am a hypertensive patient. I have noticed that my blood pressure has increased after I started taking Duzela. Is it because of Duzela, what should be done?

Duzela may cause an increase in blood pressure. Therefore, regular monitoring of blood pressure is required, especially during the first month of use. If your blood pressure increase is constant, consult your doctor. It may indicate that your Duzela dose either needs to be reduced or discontinued gradually.
