I have been told there is a significant shortage of pdocs in my state. Not suprising. Most doctors are not 'crazy' enough to take the job.

The less the better, I only fear primary care docs doing even more damage...

    5 months on cymbalta, scary side effects, to get help and to return the favor if I can.

Hi Biglost,

Cold turkey since four weeks, as I see. And from 60 mg.

Goodness, how are you doing at this point?

Thanks for noticing and response Gail, tringinFl,...I feel angry, terrible confusion and rage towards spouse so it's scary. It feels like chemical poisoning, tingling, numbness, burning sweating then freezing. I've cancelled some important things because I don't trust my irritation and am overcome with exhaustion. Bad taste in mouth, metal like. I have a month and I will not take this toxin again! So glad I found this forum! I am watching myself coming back A tiny bit at a time, ....psychiatrists are low on my list, they just switch meds or up them($$$$) feel so alone and tearful, I could have used caring people in the beginning , not toxic chemicals to shut me down...shut me up. The mental health system has been punishing the sad, sensitive, abused folk of this world throughout history, now it is poison chemicals instead Of ECT and locked wards. This cymbals is the worst

Hi Biglost

 

It is a diversion to hell that we have all went through. I wish I could make it better but I can't. All I can say is that it doe get better.

 

This is just the nerves learning how to function all over again without Cymbalta, It takes time and a lot of up and down. 

 

God Bless

Hi Biglost,

As Fishinghat said, it's a trip to hell.

I also wish that I could make it better,we can only be here and listen and give advice when we can.

All the stories we hear brings us back to those moments we have lived ourselves. We will always remember! And it pains me to see all of you suffering. And we made it, not perfect, but we did and so will you.
With a lot of bruises for sure. Time and patience as Fishinghat says.
