... fatigue, and headaches last?
4 Apr 2011
Though I expect rare, it is possible for the lack of Cymbalta in your system to cause you to miss a period. If you miss two then definitely contact your female doctor and make sure everything is ok hormonally.
As far as withdrawl symptoms from the Cymbalta, I am assuming you stopped the Cymbalta without tapering off so the symptoms could last several weeks. It really depends on several factors like how long you were on the Cymbalta and at what dose you were on when you stopped. If you want you can resume taking a low dose of Cymbalta and taper off over more time and avoid most of the withdrawl symptoms. It is best to work with a doctor on an appropriate taper schedule.
I hope you are feeling better soon,
