Going thru withdrawal from anti-depressant, Cymbalta. Constant nausea and diarrhea. Any suggestions?
20 Jul 2011
I recommend some good old pepto bismol. It will help the nausea and diarrhea. Be sure to keep yourself hydrated as diarrhea can cause dehydration very quickly. The withdrawal symptoms should clear within a week or so from your last dose of Cymbalta.
If the withdrawal is too severe, I recommend you resume the Cymbalta at the lowest dose possible and take longer to taper off. If you go slow enough you can avoid most of the discomfort.
