I tried to wean off of Cymbalta about 2yrs ago with my Doctors help. I went from 60 mg to 30 mg and then nothing. Long story short I called her crying because I was in terrible pain about 3 weeks w/o Cymbalta, she put me back on. Now I am weaning myself off, I have gone down in steps by removing the beads gradually from the capsule. Its been 1 week since I have been off completely. I am starting to experience diarrhea, dizziness, sensitivity to light and nausea. I know the pain and brain zaps are next. What do I take for the pain? I don't want to call the DR because she will prescribe Cymbalta again!
