I switched from 20 mg of Prozac to 60 mg of Cymbalta about a year ago .I've been taking 60 mg of Cymbalta every other day for a couple of weeks and now I have not taken it for about five days as I want to be done with this drug. I'm suffering major withdrawal pains and wondering How much longer it will be?
You probably should do a gradual step down. Going cold turkey does not guarantee a faster out. There are so many withdrawal effects and some are popping up after 6 weeks step down and adding another morning dose of ( Amitriptlyne ) I take 75mg at night, they help pain and help me sleep almost all night. I cannot take any opioid or nerve pain med.. I am now having the horrible skin attack. My arms look like they are 90 years old. Huge red spots, red pinpricks, scars from red spots, brown spots every where.
Everyone is different and I do have a metabolize problem with meds. Cymbalta is a hateful med. I am still having crying days. They say the withdrawal is worse and longer than heroin. You can stay at a step for awile to get you brain used to that level, then go down another step. A pharmacist can give you info.
