Abstract
We present a case of a young (43-year-old), otherwise healthy, female patient who developed drug-induced liver injury (DILI) secondary to routine use of duloxetine. Our case aims to raise awareness amongst physicians about the possibility of duloxetine-induced liver injury. We recommend monitoring liver function tests (LFTs) when initiating or adjusting the dose of duloxetine, and intermittently thereafter, to facilitate early identification and management of potential DILI.

Note - This report caught me by surpise as this is a well known event and liver function tests have always been recommended since Cymbalta went on the market.
