If you wean off correctly you shouldn't have any withdrawal. If you were taking it for depression, you will be depressed again. Have you tried effexor? That comes in generic. Also have you tried to get help from Lilly to pay for the cymbalta? They have an assistance program. Their web site is www.lillytruassist.com/Pages/index.aspx and phone number is 1-855-LLY-TRUE (559-8783)

Yes, unfortunately I had dizzy spells, headaches and fatigue and of course the pain and depression returned. I eventually just gave up trying to stop.
The symptoms you will experience have a name - it is called "SSRI Discontinuation Syndrome". You can look it up on the internet to see what you can expect.
