until she gets her effexor refilled in approx. four days. considering the side effects of withdrawals of effexor would that be a sensible solution?
While these medications are both SNRI-type antidepressants, one does not necessarily replace the other and certainly not in a few days of use. Stopping the Effexor abruptly is going to cause some very uncomfortable withdrawals whether she takes Cymbalta or not. Starting the Cymbalta can have its own side effects. So this is not the answer. Why did she run out early and can she contact the doctor asap to refill the script sooner?
