One of the Cymbalta withdrawal symptoms I've seen listed is carbohydrate cravings, and I've been experiencing that in the last couple of weeks. After I made significant changes to my diet in the last few years, my cravings in general have decreased so the recent carb cravings are notable.
I know a good diet that avoids refined baked goods, sugars, fast food, grease, etc is essential to good mental as well as physical health, especially so when coming off a prescribed drug that must be similar to getting off crack. The last thing I need is to spiral into shitty eating.
But, I found that eating carbs can ease the nausea, when a normal meal (chicken, veg, etc) does not. It's almost like feeding a hang-over.
Mmmmm pasta (gluten free!), mac n' cheese, rice, french fries, POUTINE!!!!
