I am currently trying to taper of duloxetine (Cymbalta). I was placed on the 30 mg dose and have been taking it for a few months. It hasn't helped me so I do not want to take it anymore. I have started to skip a day and think I taught my body to go without it (don't have any adverse effects) and now I have been taking the med every 2 days, so not take the med for 2 days and take it in the morning of the 3rd day. At the end of the 2nd day I do start having some fatigue and brain zaps but I take benadryl and it helps.
Im planning to increase the time by a day in January 21, if my body is able to adapt.
My question is whether this is effective and this is what I should continue to do if it's working for me? Please advise.
