How effective are Japanese Cymbalta capsules 30 mg for depression and depressive states (duloxetine hydrochloride)?
Cymbalta capsules contain duloxetine hydrochloride, a serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor. It inhibits the reuptake of serotonin and noradrenaline in brain and makes intracerebral neurotransmission smooth. By this, Cymbalta capsules alleviate depressive mood and improve such symptoms as loss of motivation and anxiety. Despite of that, Cymbalta capsules do not affect dopaminergic, adrenergic, cholinergic, histaminergic, opioid, glutamate, and gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) receptors.
Who should take Cymbalta capsules from Japan?
Cymbalta capsules are used for the treatment of major depressive disorder, general anxiety disorder and related disorders. In some countries, duloxetine is also approved for the treatment of diabetic neuropathy, chronic muscle or joint pain (such as low back pain and osteoarthritis pain) and fibromyalgia. Studies concluded, that due to its efficacy in preventing or delaying relapse in responders among patients with general anxiety disorder, duloxetine is indicated as an effective first-line treatment option for the management of this disease (N. J. Carter, P. L. McCormack. “Duloxetine: a review of its use in the treatment of generalized anxiety disorder”. CNS Drugs. 23 (6): 523–41).
