I was on Cymbalta for chronic pain but it made me suicidal so was tapered off. Since it has a very short 1/2 life, in spite of tapering off I developed the typical SSRI discontinuation syndrome with all those horrid side effects but now have anticholinergic rebound which is why I am having so much anxiety and panic attacks.
My question is --- How long is this going to last? weeks? months?
I need to know when to expect this to ease up.
It is getting so that I am afraid to go anywhere because as soon as I am stressed I get more and more agitated until I am having a full blown anxiety attack. And it seems to be getting worse not better.
This is day 5 without the cymbalta.
