Sorry you are having such a rough time with your meds. I undestand what you are going through. I also take Cymbalta 60 mg a day and have had spinal (epidural) steroid injections. I don't know if the injections helped my back, but the fentanyl for increased pain did. I have been on Cymbalta for years along with also taking a variety of other meds and have never had trouble with depression (Cymbalta never did a thing for me regarding "musculoskeletal pain" as advertised on the telly these days) and I would think that it would take more than a few days for Cymbalta levels in your blood stream, if affected by another medication, to drop off enough for you to be able to notice the difference This is quite the conundrum.
My best advice to you is to talk to either your doctor/doctors for coordinatoin of care and/or talk to your favorite pharmacist regarding any possible interactions going on with the medications you are presently on. I have found that pharmacists geneally know more about medications than the docs as it is their responsibility to know these things. Just my opinion, not trying to step on toes here.
Hope you get everything straightened out,

... worried about is that I read a lot of people are coming off of it. Is there a reason why? Is it not good for the long haul?
