This is the most helpful website I've come across. Thanks everyone.
I have been on Cymbalta for depression and anxiety for about 1.5-2 years. I have occasionally missed doses on accident and the vertigo and flashes I get along with the nausea are so intense I can't beleive it's o ly been a couple hours without it.
Last year I was also prescribed well butrin to help with the Cymbalta. I'm on 150mg extended release so supposedly it lasts all day. I have decided to quit Cymbalta cold turkey and I'm wondering if the well butrin might reduce my withdrawal symptoms. ( when I accidentally skipped doses I skipped both. I've never taken one without the other.) Does anyone know if the symptoms will be milder? Or has anyone else been on both drugs at the same time?
Thanks for all everyone's help I thought I was the only one feeling this way!

I took Wellbutrin XL 300mg with Cymbalta 120mg and recently stopped cold turkey due to a silly doctor. I don't know if it has lessened my withdrawals, but I sure feel like beyond crap and Sunday was my last Cymbalta dose. I'm still taking the Wellbutrin XL daily.

FYI, my symptoms are severe exhaustion, appetite going wild extremes, funny tasting food, stomach cramps that rank up there when I had an infected gall bladder, sounds sound like I am underwater, floaty feeling in my head, mild nausea, moderate level migraines, brain zaps when I move my eyes suddenly, night sweats, and really low blood pressure (it used to skyrocket to 150 over something when I was on Cymbalta, but yesterday it was 110/76).
