    In the future I would like to stop cymbalta

Dear Jennifer:
What you have mention, have been symptoms I´ve felt during weaning off of cymbalta: extreme sadness, anger, low libido, nausea.
It is curious that you mention that "you don´t even want to look for a job". I have felt that during the years I was on medication and now while weaning.

Talk to your doctor to see if there is a way to do the transition from cymbalta to prozac less painful. I am not a doctor, but I know cymbalta works on 2 neurotrasmitters (serotonin and norepinephrine) and prozac only acts on serotonin. Maybe your body is getting used to the lack of cymbalta that worked on norepinephrine.
