Last night I went ballistic on my husband. I have a temper that goes from 0 to 90 in .2 seconds right now. It is awful! I really hurt his feelings too! I feel like Sh*t! I can't believe I said such mean stuff. I feel like a psycho!

He says that he forgives but he has had bad marriages in the past (so have I) and now he will pull back from me. Already has.

He understands my seizures but he doesn't understand this.

This stuff is awful! I read that a perfectly healthy girl (college student I think) was in a trial for this. She committed suicide 4 days after they switched her fro the real thing to a placebo. YIKES! It's not the drug but the sudden removal of the drug that kills.

I am so sorry you're going through this! I flipped out on my husband the other night, too. I've gone cold turkey over the past couple of weeks after slowly weaning off and thank GOD he works w/the mentally ill because otherwise I think our marriage could've been over. That's how bad it was. We were out to eat and we talked about how I was feeling and he said he was going to marry a supermodel. He was only kidding and I flew off the deep end. I ran out of the restaraunt balling my eyes out. He had to sit me down and we had it out. But now we're closer because of it. There have been other situations like this I won't bore you with the details but I know what you're feeling. Everyone on this board does. I was on the phone with my mom today telling her about it and as I heard myself describing what I was going through it didn't sound as awful as it had when I was going through it...it's so hard to convey to other people how insidious this drug really is. I mean there were days when I was cold turkey where I thought I was going to end up back in the hospital. It was that bad. Maybe you can have your husband read this site? I've found it so helpful. Keep the faith it DOES GET BETTER.

I"m so sorry, and I can SO relate. I just got in a fight with my husband because he was going to make himself a mojito, and I'm not drinking right now. I told him that was "my drink" (because they're my favorite), why was he making that for himself.

HUH???? I'm not even sure what I was mad about, but I was furious.
This is craziness. Pure craziness! And I"m still weaning.....only down to 34 mg. UGH!

    I have survived Cymbalta. I joined while I was withdrawing but was too sick to post. I want to help others who are going through the same thing and raise awareness amongst prescribers and patients about what this drug can do.

I went totally mental at my husband so many times, I don't know how he's still here. Amazingly, he claims it is preferable to being married to the Cymbalta Zombie that I was before!!
