I need a little support, in this ugly and difficult experience. I have been getting off Cymbalta crazy poison from 60mg to now 70 beads by taking 5 beads a week. It has been relatively a good process this way. Especially when compared to quitting cold turkey, as I tried months ago. That was true hell. I can’t believe how strong this “medicine” affects neurochemistry and how this latter affects “reality”. Not to mention how hard is to get off of it.
So now I went down from 80 to 70 beads in these last two weeks. I had some changes in my life´s routine that were not positive (moved to another city and I have been getting less sunshine, having trouble getting good fresh fruits, less physical activity and more stress).
I have been experiencing subtle suicidal thoughts, a lot of anxiety, very fatigued and grumpy, depressive, sleeping a lot, I feel like my brain is so slow and not coordinated (especially when speaking to others), I find social interaction and doing more to help myself very difficult feeling this way.
For example I tried some days ago to quit smoking cigarettes…boy I felt anxiety.
By the way the 80 /10 /10 RV diet helped me a lot. I really recommend trying it. We all know from our experience that what we put into our body makes a big difference… I was amazed of the big burden my body was having eating so much crap. I experienced feeling better and making this process easier.
Because of some hard health issues I started having the Cymbalta but now I don’t now which is worse. My disease, or getting off this thing.
Can you share your experiences of quitting these last beads and the weeks and months after? Will I feel better; everything looks very dark these days.
Thanks to the ones who have shared info and experiences before; it has helped a lot in this process.
