I tapered off cymbalta and took my last dose 16 days ago. The cymbalta started the anxiety and it has been getting worse the longer I am off it. I was at the hospital this morning and hard a terrible panic attack. They gave me Ativan which slowly helped and when my doctor got there he gave me buspirone 5 mg to take 3 times a day. Will that help me? What kind of side effects can I expect and what should I look out for?
Has anyone else taken it for anxiety and did it help or hurt the problem?
