I have been on Cymbalta 120 mgs for over 10 years. My doctor recently started weaning me off of it. First, I dropped to 90 mgs for two weeks, then 60 mgs for two weeks, and now have been on 30 mgs for two weeks. Can I just go to zero now? The withdraw has been horrific and I really just want to bite the bullet and be done, but I don't want to not be safe. Please help. I need this to be done (the withdraw)!!!
Yes you can just stop it you will be uncomfortable but it is not dangerous since you've been dropping 30mg at a time already. My doctor prescribed Prozac in lieu of Cymbalta and it helps with the withdrawal symptoms. That's something you could ask your doctor about. Prozac has a very long half life and does not have the withdrawal effects that Cymbalta does.
