I stopped after taking 10 mg a day for about 10 days and am having symptoms of upset stomach stomach pains vomiting. I also have bad constipation and hot and cold chills and my depression is really bad This is day 2 I stopped becasue it made me feel more anxious and I felt like I had the flu I also just started Cymbaltal 8 days ago so maybe that is the culprit I don't know but I am really sick My shrink says I need to learn how to ride out side effects I can' t say what I would like to tell him right now!
Your shrink is right. If you give up every med before it has a chance to stop the side effects and work, you'll never find meds to help you. Cymbalta proabably is the one causing those symptoms. I wouldn't stop the buspar, I'd break it in half and take 5 mg for a few days, to get used to it. As far as the constipation, take a laxative.
Stopping and starting with these meds will produce unpleasant side-effects like this. I would advise not stopping/starting or change Dr's instructions on your own and hang on until you can get instructions from the Dr who prescribes for you to avoid this in the future.
