List Your Symtpoms

I started 75mg on July 1st. Gonna start 100mg on the 8th. Yeah, feeling really terrible. Sucks. Brain zaps weren't too bad and aren't noticeable now. But man, everything else is bad. Can tell I'm still in withdrawal mode because of these awful vivid dreams and nightmares I'm getting. Sometimes I wake up and can't remember if something was real or not.

Yeah, really struggling right now. Anxiety, headaches, diarrhea, not feeling myself. Thanks for the support and I know it can take some people months to feel back to normal. I've only been off cymbalta 24 days. Hopefully this improves soon because I'm at an all-time low.

On Day 4 of 100mg Zoloft. Feel the best I have in a while. Depression has faded, my mood has become more optimistic and energized, my sleep is more regular, and this if the first day my OCD rumination isn't bad. Seeing progress finally! Just happy so I had to post.

Actually, let's just call that a little victory lol. It was my first few hours where I felt good again. Last night went back to how I was doing before - awful OCD/anxiety and just feeling weird, diarrhea, racing thoughts, etc.
Sad to say today is the same so far. But I will take those few hours of clarity as a good thing. Probably will give this 100mg another 8 weeks to watch for improvement and then see if I will go to 150mg.
Lol. Sorry to spoil everyone. I was just so overjoyed that I had to update, buuuutttt now I feel crappy again
Ah well, takes more time I guess.

Two days no sleep-two days constant sleep
Worsened Addictive Behaviours
No depression reliefe - was still suicidal.
Sudden stabbing pain
Worsened digestive problems
Can't comunicate - avoiding people
Extreme memmory loss including forgetting words, Sometimes can take me awhile to remmember things like what year it is (?!)
Nausea and vomiting
Forgotten childhood memmories popping up (Craziest one:remmembered chewing on a theething ring. I remmembered the texture, the feeling on my toothless gums, the color and shape of the ring. This was confirmed as a true memmory, definitly did not imagine this).
*thinking no one will beieve what I'm going through, including right now*

Yes, all this is real, I'm sorry that you have to go through this. Surely cold turkey.
I've read so many horror stories here concerning withdrawal, this is why we don't advise that method. Fishinghat can tell you more about it.
While on it, I had suicidal ideation a few times, and in withdrawal also. If we can help in any way, let us know. A few tricks here and there, but nothing to prevent all the symptoms.
We are here for you Pain, anytime.

You are definitely in cold turkey purgatory. You might look through the thread "Summary of Cymbalta Withdrawal", in the Medical Support section. It is a collection pf what people have tried and what worked and what didn't as well as medical research articles. There are some good suggestions for the stomach ailments, nausea, etc.
Be kind to yourself. Don 't push yourself too hard as this only makes it worse. This is a time to pamper yourself.
