I've been taking Cymbalta for 8yrs for depression & chronic pain. I started having terrible sweating, short term memory loss, severe depression, worsening pain, & so many other side effects it would take an hour to write them all down!!
My Dr started slowly trying to get my dosage down from 90mgs, & after getting down from 60mgs to 30mgs, my side effects became unbareable. I forged on & now I'm on my 2nd day of taking just 5mgs of Lexapro, after going 3 days w/out taking Cymbalta.
I'm curious if anyone has successfully conquered this transition, & how long it took to feel somewhat normal? I'm aware it doesn't happen overnight, & I'm not asking for rainbows & butterflies-but the way I feel now is NOT good!! Along w/the other stated side effects, I'm so lethargic & my brain is acting as if I turned the switch to off.
Any advice? I'm desperate.
