However, I no longer have anxiety and this medicine makes me too fired up. I started the weaning process and gradually reduced the days I take the medicine. Now I have not had the medicine for 7 days. Feel good, but can not sleep right. Getting cranky! Help please.
How did you get to 20 mgs. Judy3300? The lowest is 30 mg. capsule. I have been on Cymbalta for about 6 months at 30 mgs. Doc wants me to go on Viibryd, as Cymbalta is doing nothing and I don't want to increase, as I hear so many bad side affects of this particular drug ... Doc said to just start with Viibryd 20 mg. as I have been taking lowest Cymbalta dose ... but I would like to taper off a bit more ...
Were u taking it in the mornings only? I found that if i took it any other time during the day it kept me up at night also. This is something that you need to ask your prescribing Dr about. They might can adjust your dose or give u something to help u sleep at night. It also may be that you need a different drug all together because if your taking it for anxiety its definitely not the best drug out there to treat that. Dont give up and hang in there. Its very common for them to have to change doses and even change meds around until they find what works best for you. It can sometime take a long while to get everything just right.
