You deserve a medal for going to Walmart! That places requires medication just to be able to handle it on a regular old day.
I hope that getting a little bit of the 'balta' will give you a bit of ease in symptoms. It's amazing that once you take that pill the dizziness, nausea, head achy, crappy feelings lessen.
I have to say that I have been pretty lucky this week when I dropped down past 20mg that I am still feeling good. I tell myself not to get too excited though because 1. I am still on it and 2. the other shoe could drop at any minute.
I really think that taking the prozac while I am weaning has been helping. I know that it's not the panacea for everything or everyone but it seems to be helping me right now. I might even stay on it through the winter months until the weather changes and I am able to get out into the sunlight more. Winters in the Midwest are brutal and not exactly a real mood enhancer.
As a woman this weaning has been even harder. What was supposed to help with PMDD has caused it to get worse. As I have weaned I have been getting my period 2x a month. How is that for adding insult to injury?
This whole experience has opened my eyes to how sensitive our bodies and especially our brains are. I really hadn't given too much thought to exactly what these drugs do to my brain and body. I am certainly well versed now after spending hours researching and reading. Like so many others Cymbalta really helped when I needed it but there is no reason why it should essentially 'break' us when trying to stand on our own.
I hope that your feeling better and don't throw any more fruit tonight.
