c. Description of specific undesirable effects

Stopping treatment with duloxetine (particularly if it is brutal) frequently induces withdrawal symptoms. The most commonly reported withdrawal reactions are: dizziness, sensory disturbances (including paresthesia or sensations of electrical discharge, especially in the head), sleep disturbances (including insomnia and restlessness), fatigue, drowsiness, restlessness or anxiety, nausea and / or vomiting, tremor, headache, myalgia, irritability, diarrhea, hyperhidrosis and vertigo.

Generally, for SSRIs and SNRIs, these symptoms are of mild intensity at "moderate and spontaneously resolving, although they may be severely severe and / or prolonged in some patients. When treatment with duloxetine is no longer necessary, it is therefore advisable to gradually reduce the doses until the treatment is stopped (see sections Posology and method of administration and Warnings and precautions for use ) .

In the acute 12-week phase of three clinical trials of duloxetine in patients with diabetic neuropathic pain, small but statistically significant increases in fasting gonorrhea were observed in duloxetine-treated patients. The HbA1c value remained stable in patients treated with placebo and in patients treated with duloxetine. In the extension phase of these trials, which lasted up to 52 weeks, the HbA1c value increased in the duloxetine groups and usual treatment, but the mean increase was 0.3% more important in the duloxetine group. There was also a small increase in fasting and total cholesterol levels in the duloxetine group, whereas laboratory tests showed a slight decrease in these parameters in the usual treatment group.

The QT interval - corrected for heart rate - in patients receiving duloxetine was no different from that observed in placebo-treated patients. Measurement of QT, PR, QRS or QTcB intervals showed no clinically significant differences between the duloxetine and placebo groups.

d. Pediatric population

A total of 509 pediatric patients aged 7 to 17 years with major depressive disorder and 241 pediatric patients aged 7 to 17 years with generalized anxiety disorder have been treated with duloxetine in clinical trials. In general, the undesirable effects profile of duloxetine in children and adolescents was similar to that seen in adults.

In clinical trials, a total of 467 randomized pediatric patients receiving duloxetine showed a mean decrease in body weight of 0.1 kg at 10 weeks compared with an average increase of 0.9 kg in 353 patients treated with the drug. placebo. Subsequently, over an extension period of four to six months, these patients had, on average, a tendency to "recover their expected initial weight percentile, based on population data from the same age. and of the same sex.

In studies up to 9 months, an average decrease of 1% in their height percentile (decrease of 2% in children (7-11 years) and increase of 0.3% in adolescents (12-17 years) years)) has been observed in pediatric patients treated with duloxetine (see Warnings and Precautions section ).

Declaration of suspected undesirable effects
