How long can Cymbalta withdrawal last? I reduced from 60 mg to 30 mg about six weeks ago. The first 3 weeks were a bit uncomfortable but then I felt fine for two weeks. This week I am all over the place! Anxious, exhausted and had a crying fit this morning I felt so overwhelmed. Could this still be to do with reducing Cymbalta?
Oh my! It says it might help lose lbs. lol. I take it for depression after lexapro stopped doing the job. But I also take pain meds which do not last the whole month because I have been on the same script for 7 years. But am afraid to complain because of the sigma attached to r illness. Xx do u take pain meds?
Hoping your transition goes more smoothly. When I was withdrawing off of Cymbalta it was miserable. But so was being on it. Soft hugs
Do you think about going up on the pain meds, try something new. I am on Oxy 15mg no Tylenol, works great. And for Cymbalta I was on it for year and it took 4 weeks to get off of Cymbalta by adding Prozac. Prozac works great you get a boost of energy and it is easy to come off of.
I tried to give up prozac. I was OK for a few weeks then lots of crying, irritability, and sensory issues. I have been back on it now for a month and feel so much better...mentally...not physically.
