Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change From Baseline at Week 12 in Average Pain Severity Rating Using Diaries for the Combined Duloxetine Arms (40 mg + 60 mg) [ Time Frame: Baseline, 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Average pain severity was measured using an 11-point numerical rating scale, collected by diaries and expressed as weekly mean. The scale is a self-reported instrument that measures the severity of pain based on the average pain over the past 24-hours. The severity scores range from 0 (no pain) to 10 (pain as severe as you can imagine).


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change From Baseline at Week 12 in Average Pain Severity Rating Score Using Diaries [ Time Frame: Baseline, 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Average pain severity was measured using an 11-point numerical rating scale, collected by diaries and expressed as weekly mean. The scale is a self-reported instrument that measures the severity of pain based on the average pain over the past 24-hours. The severity scores range from 0 (no pain) to 10 (pain as severe as you can imagine).

  • Change From Baseline at Week 12 in Worst Pain Severity Score and Night Pain Severity Score Using Diaries for the Combined Duloxetine Arms (40 mg + 60 mg) [ Time Frame: Baseline, 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Pain severity for worst pain and night pain as measured by an 11-point numerical rating scale, collected by diaries and expressed as weekly means. A self-reported scale that measures the severity of pain based on the worst pain and night pain experienced over the past 24-hours. The worst pain and night pain severity scores each range from 0 (no pain) to 10 (pain as severe as you can imagine).

  • Change From Baseline at Week 12 in Worst Pain Severity Score and Night Pain Severity Score Using Diaries [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Pain severity for worst pain and night pain as measured by an 11-point numerical rating scale, collected by diaries and expressed as weekly means. A self-reported scale that measures the severity of pain based on the worst pain and night pain experienced over the past 24-hours. The worst pain and night pain severity scores each range from 0 (no pain) to 10 (pain as severe as you can imagine).

  • Patient Global Impression of Improvement Scale at Week 12 in Combined Duloxetine Arms (40 mg + 60 mg) [ Time Frame: Week 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    A scale that measures the patient's perception of improvement at the time of assessment compared with the start of treatment. The score ranges from 1 (very much better) to 7 (very much worse).

  • Patient Global Impression of Improvement Scale at Week 12 [ Time Frame: Week 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    A scale that measures the patient's perception of improvement at the time of assessment compared with the start of treatment. The score ranges from 1 (very much better) to 7 (very much worse).

  • Change From Baseline in Brief Pain Inventory Severity Scores at Week 12 for the Combined Duloxetine Arms (40 mg + 60 mg) [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    A self-reported scale that measures the severity of pain. The severity scores range from 0 (no pain) to 10 (pain as severe as you can imagine). There are 4 questions assessing worst pain, least pain, and average pain in the past 24 hours, and the pain right now. Each question has a total range of scores from 0 to 10.

  • Change From Baseline in Brief Pain Inventory Severity Scores at Week 12 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    A self-reported scale that measures the severity of pain. The severity scores range from 0 (no pain) to 10 (pain as severe as you can imagine). There are 4 questions assessing worst pain, least pain, and average pain in the past 24 hours, and the pain right now. Each question has a total range of scores from 0 to 10.

  • Change From Baseline in Brief Pain Inventory Interference Scores at Week 12 for the Combined Duloxetine Arms (40 mg + 60 mg) [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The Interference scores range from 0 (does not interfere) to 10 (completely interferes). There are 7 questions assessing the interference of pain in the past 24 hours for general activity, mood, walking ability, normal work, relations with other people, sleep, and enjoyment of life. Each question has a total range of scores from 0 to 10.

  • Change From Baseline in Brief Pain Inventory Interference Scores at Week 12 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The Interference scores range from 0 (does not interfere) to 10 (completely interferes). There are 7 questions assessing the interference of pain in the past 24 hours for general activity, mood, walking ability, normal work, relations with other people, sleep, and enjoyment of life. Each question has a total range of scores from 0 to 10.

  • Change From Baseline in Beck Depression Inventory-II (BDI-II) Total Score at Week 12 for the Combined Duloxetine Arms (40 mg + 60 mg) [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    A 21-item, patient-completed questionnaire to assess characteristics of depression. Each of the 21 items corresponding to a symptom of depression is summed to give a single score. There is a four-point scale for each item ranging from 0 to 3. Total score ranges from 0 (no depression) to 63 (severe depression).
