I was on 60 mg Cymbalta for almost a year and stopped taking it two days ago. The brain zaps have been incredible already. Sometimes they only last for a couple of seconds and other times they bounce from side to side for several seconds. Have also been experiencing some vertigo. Everything I've read about this drug is bad and that is why I decided to get off it now. I am a recovering alcoholic and I quit drinking cold turkey. I used to smoke up to two packs of cigarettes a day and I quit cold turkey. And that is the way I'm getting off Cymbalta. It's the only way I know to do this. From what I've read here, it will either be just a nuisance or it will be pure hell for the next few weeks. Either way, the drug is not going to win this battle!! On the other hand, I don't wany to die in the process! Oh, I am also taking 100 mg of Nortriptyline.
