Duloxetine is a balanced serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor. Duloxetine-induced liver injury in patients with preexisting liver disease or chronic alcohol use is known. However, we have found that duloxetine can also induce liver injury in cases without those risk factors. We recommend that clinicians should monitor liver function carefully following duloxetine treatment.
