How long can this go? In the hospital, they told me it could go as long as 2-3 years. I was reading scary stuff on the Surviving Antidepressants site from people thinking they were still having waves longer than that, like 5+ years out (from other antidepressant withdrawal).(Really??)
I am just about 9 months off Cymbalta now, and tinnitus keeps worsening. I keep getting new sounds. I am very scared about this...I don't know how long this will keep getting worse. Someone else on the SA site said she just kept getting worse withdrawal symptoms the farther out she got, up till about 18 months.
I had a few weeks where things were calmer, my muscle spasms were hardly happening, and then bam, the past month has been increasing tinnitus and worse muscle spasms. Can a wave really last this long?
I wish someone could just tell me this would all go away tomorrow, but I know that's not gonna happen. I also know everyone is different, and people's circumstances are different and it's impossible to say how long each person's withdrawal will go. I just want to know what's typical.
