I am a 46 year old woman and I'm having a horrible horrible side effects from switching from cymbalta to vibrate terrible vertigo symptoms nauseous anger and I need to know if there's something I can do that relax these things
When I weaned my daughter off of Cymbalta I found a lot of research articles stating that coming off of Cymbalta can be extremely challenging. I weaned her off 5 milligrams at a time over a month to go very slowly so she wouldn't have any of the terrible side effects of stopping Cymbalta. I had to open the capsules up, weigh the contents and put a little less in a new empty capsule every day. You can buy the empty capsules at the Vitamin Shoppe or online and a scale at Target or a drug store. Ely Lilly doesn't make Cymbalta in a lower dose than 20 mg which is not low enough if you are trying to get off Cymbalta without side effects. The NIH wrote a paper that you can find online about the problems with Cymbalta. It works really, really well for my daughter, though, because she has depression and nerve pain (due to Lyme disease for almost three years now). Good luck to you!
