I tapered very slowly off Cymbalta and had no discontinuation symptoms at all, but the literature lists these potential effects, especially if stopped abruptly:

“Brain zaps”
(electric shock sensations) Extreme mood swings
(“irritability that quickly turns to rage”)
Suicidal thoughts Paranoia
Dizziness Confusion
Nausea and Vomiting Limb pain
Headache Fatigue
Nightmares Insomnia
Diarrhea Anxiety
Excessive sweating Agitation
Involuntary crying or laughing Hypomania
Tinnitus Seizures

I quit taking it 3 weeks ago. I tapered off over 5 days. I didn't have any of the side effects they mention. Your doctor should provide you with guidelines on how to stop taking it.
