Duloxetine overdose
Duloxetine Drug Whys

Generic Name: Duloxetine (no generic available, U.S. patent expires June, 2013) Fatal overdoses of duloxetine have been reported with as little as 1,000.

Regardless of age, monitoring for clinical worsening, risk of suicide and unusual behaviors is mandatory. Duloxetine cannot be used in patients taking monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs). Family, friends and caregivers should be made aware of this and instructed to monitor the patient daily.

Adverse events have been observed in fetal animal studies of duloxetine, especially during the later third trimester. No well controlled human studies are yet available.

Overdoses generally manifest with sleepiness, coma, serotonin syndrome, seizures, tachycardia, hyper or hypotension, and vomiting.

World J Biol Psychiatry. 2009;10(4 Pt 2):385-9. doi: 10.1080/ . Non-fatal overdose of duloxetine in combination with other antidepressants.

The overdose resulted to be not fatal and the outcome was relatively benign, also thanks to the fast emergency assistance. The patient was dozy and confused and some electrolyte imbalances were found. After gastrolavage, toxicological analyses revealed high plasma levels of duloxetine (384 ng/ml) and low levels of the other supposedly involved drugs. This case suggests that clinicians should be alerted to the possibility of toxic effects caused by simultaneous overdoses of duloxetine and other antidepressants and that caution should be used when prescribing more than one of these drugs to patients at risk of suicide. Here a duloxetine overdose case, in combination with other antidepressants and benzodiazepines, is reported and the chemical-clinical correlations discussed; this is probably the first detailed report of such a case. The patient referred to have ingested nine tablets of Cymbalta (more than 500 mg of duloxetine) and high amounts of four other drugs (venlaine, trazodone, sertraline and clonazepam). The pharmaco-toxicological profile of duloxetine, a novel SNRI antidepressant, is still not compley known; in particular, intoxication cases have been scarcely studied.

Cymbalta isn't particularly lethal and the doctor knows that, that's why he's treating her with it. I wouldn't be worried about a Cymbalta overdose.
