I have been taking cymbalta for over 5 years. I am horrified to have found out about how common "withdrawling" from cymbalta is, and the "truth" about the side effects of this medicine. I have never been addicted to anything in my whole life, so for me to try to eliminate this medicine is very devestating. My daily dose was 60mg. It has NOT helped much with my depression for over 1 year but it was a miracle for my fibro. My Dr. has put me on a regime of: 60mg every other pm, 30mg every other pm, and added 10mg of prozac every am. Ive only been doing this for 13 days, and Im not sure I can make it the next 4 days to my next appt. I am experiencing a persistent head ache, severe irritability, very short tempered, excessive eating, bouts of crying, confusion and am in severe fibro pain. Other people thinking of starting this medicine need to do their own research, dont just take your Dr.s word!!!
