I HAVE BEEN SUFFERING FROM CYMBALTA WITHDRAWAL…..FOUND SOMETHING THAT HAS HELPED SO MUCH!!!!!! I have had all the symptoms as everyone else…this medicine is horrible!!! I have been off of it cold turkey and I am getting better with the help of antioxidants. I could almost tell a difference in about 2 days. Here’s what I have done:
All of the following were found at my local Health food store:
50mg Glutathione daily (antioxidant the strongest out there)
Gogi Juices 1 oz-2 times a day
Acaci Juice 1oz 2 times a day
Power 4 juice (I think that’s the name) contains: Acaci, Gogi, Mangosteen and Noni. 1oz 1 time a day.
B12 liquid 1 dropper 1 time a day.

I also started an antioxidant powder mix i time daily. I am taking Red Lightning or you can get Ruby Red mix. Or anything that has a ORAC value of atleast 4,000. ORAC-oxygen radical absorbance capacity.

I know this seems like a lot to take but just mix the juices with a bit of grape juice and it pretty good. It’s really just 1 cup of juice 2 times a day with the other supplements.

Basically, get major antioxidants in. I promise this has helps for me. I thought I was going to die last week. but today I am so much better!!! My head tremor and night terrors have stopped. I can also talk clearly. Still have the brain Whooshes but the are much less in frequency and intensity. My emotions seem much better too. I feel I can beat this.

Hang in there everyone. This has helped me so much.

Just a bit of a update to say i have tried this and i did find it helpful.

Ive tried part of what you have said and i must say i feel 90% better, i mixed and matched on what i could find.
So far i just have a dull head ache, no more brain zaps !! but im extremely angry/bad tempered.. wish it would pass.

Ive been taking..

Omega 3,6 and 9 x 2
Acaci Juice - 1oz x 2
B12 tablet x 1
Benadryl x 2 ( have hayfever, so its a bonus i guess)
Holland and Barretts super antioxidant formula (they dont stock Gluthathione :lol: ) x 1
and some multi vitamins.

Edit - We live in a small town (1 herbalist), but i think its worth getting all mentioned.

Has anyone ever tried Alpha Lipoic Acid?

I was wondering because a friend of mine was telling me about it because I have PCOS which it helps stabilize blood sugar but I was reading it was a powerful antioxidant as well. Some of the stuff I have read said that it is widely used for just about anything in Europe.

I am not suggesting the use of this I just wanted to know if anyone has ever used it for Cympalta withdrawl.

Best of Health to everyone.

:shock: Day 7 off of Cymbalta and I feel like I am walking around in another world and my head is like a bobble head. I also have either a cold or allergies which is not helping. I am keeping up my confidence though that I will make it through.
