In brief: Sometimes
Duloxetine is more effective than ssris for treatment of chronic pain.
For depression it is equally effective. However, individuals may respond more to one drug than to another.

The ssris r effective but some depressions seem to a drug that can also block the reuptake of norepinephrine--this is hoe we conceptualize it--we don't know 4 sure.
