Can't Stop Crying
Posted 30 July 2008 - 11:44 AM
for your encouragement. I really thought Sunday night that I had slipped into an aquifer of the universe's sadness. That is how intense the feeling of pain was. I thought, this can't just be my pain I'm feeling, but my mind is feeling all the pain there is in the world...weird, I know. But, i broke down and took 10 mgs. of celexa that night, as the doctor had prescribed. I've taken it 3 nights in a row, now, and the intensity of pain is dulled. She wants me to get up to 40 mgs. but I'm not sure I want to do that. I wish I could just be free of drugs.
Anyway, thanks for the uplifting words. My goal is to be the uplifter some day when I get some victory.
Attorney_Victim: I think it's been 6 days since my last dose of Cymbalta, which I weaned off of from 40 to 30 to 20 to 10 to 5mgs (opening the capsule and guessing!) for five weeks, going down 10 per week until I got to 5. They need to make this in liquid form or something so people can wean off really slowly like you can with Paxil. It's ridiculous that 20 mgs. is the smallest dose you can get.

I think the Cymbalta withdrawal problems are very similar to the Paxil withdrawal issues...which have been litigated as a class-action. It's just a shame that even after Paxil, Lilly has gotten away with causing the same problems with Cymbalta!!

I can tell you from experience that it does pass. Keep on keepin' on, and it will pass. It's just a matter of hanging on, and getting every drop of support you can. The people here are incredibly helpful and encouraging. I know I couldn't have made it without this site.
I even reached a point in my withdrawal where I was so miserable, and some pretty big personal things were going on, where I considered going back on the cymbalta. I was afraid at that point, that I could not actually do it. I came here and told the situation I was facing, and people encouraged me to NOT go back, to keep going forward, no matter what. I followed their advice, and I'm so glad I did, because now, I'm cymbalta free. Thank God.
I know some moments, hours, days feel absolutely intolerable coming off this med from hell. I felt like I was going totally insane, or was already there. I even felt I needed to be hospitalized at one point. I didn't go, but knew I probably should. I got through it, and you will, too. So many here have done it, are doing it right this minute. Hang tight to this site. It's a life-saver, literally.
Hugs and prayers your way,

I don't think it's accidental, either! I really believe they know they're causing people to feel the need to stay on the stuff or suffer hell.
I have tried to quit 3 times in the last year! Yes, I have been on this drug for almost two years...but everytime I quit, I can't take the emotional crash and headaches. I am attempt #4...three days and today was the worst emotional day but I found this forum. I am crying as I write this because I feel crazy and I am staring at that damn bottle wondering if it is worth it.
Thanks to this forum...I will NOT take those pills again.
:cry: I will get through this!
