I gained FIFTY -yes FIFTY- pounds! I also had elevated liver enzymes. I decicded to get off the drug and tapered over SIX MTHS! Despite weaning slowly, I suffered awful serotonin withdrawal syndrome. Has anyone else experienced incredible weight gain with this drug?
Hey I hop,
Yes, I have been on cymbalta for years and gained weight, though I must admit I wasn't real careful about what I ate either. I am now weaning off cymbalta and am trying Pristiq. I have weaned offf cymbalta before and the withdrawls can be unpleasant to say the least.
What are you taking in place of the cymbalta? Have you lost any weight? I have lost 6 pounds in the last three weeks. I have been trying very hard watching calories though.
Keep in touch, let me know how you are doing,
