I am extremely sensitive to medication changes and had to open the Cymbalta capsule and take out some of the contents in order to slow down my taper. Dropping 30 mgs at a time was too fast for me! Taking out part of the capsule worked well. Regards - ElizaJane
Were you ever tried on it at higher doses to see if it helped? You will have to have help from the doc to get off of it, which everyone should do anyway. You can't cut a capsule.
The capsules do come apart and there are between 200-280 little coated beads inside.
Yes you can divide in half. My pharmacist showed me how to do this. You carefully open the capsule (I suggest doing this over a plate or large bowl) and remove as many of the beads as you need to.
This sure helped me when I had to stop cymbalta
You can't cut capsules in half like a regular pill. You'd have to ask your dr for a lower dosage. I found that it didn't help me at all.
