Don't forget that Cymbalta also comes in 20mg capsules. Somebody was asking the other day how to go from 60 to 30. My doctor did not even know that a 20 mg capsule existed!

60 mg
50 mg = 30mg + 20mg
40mg = two 20s
then start the counting pellets (hopefully there are less in a 20!) if you need to wean more from the 20s!

Compounding pharmacies make doses that aren't readily available for many drugs, I don't know if Cymbalta is one of those ask your doctor if this might be an option so you don't have to count pellets after the 20mg dose. The timing of the drop down should be determined between you and your prescribing doctor.

Personally, I tolerated going from 60mg to 30mg very well and did not notice a difference. But we are all so individual and the above might help some people drop down even slower.
