... major depressive disorder, anxiety. I was instructed to take 60mg of cymbalta in AM with the Prozac. I have been taking for a week now without any known side effects. I have been tapering off the other 60mg dose of cymbalta with bead counting. How long should I take to taper off cymbalta while still taking Prozac? How safe is this? Should I speed up the tapering process of cymbalta? My psychiatrist did not make it clear what I was to do with the other 60mg dose of cymbalta. I'm concerned that I'm mixing the two meds that could cause adverse reactions as well as tapering off cymbalta without adverse effects as well. Any information would be appreciated. Shorty57
