First off again thank you to the moderators of this site. This has been so nice to have a go to place for information from those who have "been there"! Fishinghat needs to write a book, just my thought.
My history on this can be found in a previous post of mine so won't repeat. After consulting with two doctors they said to take one pill every other day for a week and then quit. I asked if they understood about the horrible cymbalta withdrawal effects and they didn't comment much so I think they know and don't want to get into it. My docs said they have had people taper more slowly if needed but to try this first. I agreed knowing it may not work. Last time I tried getting off the major effects showed up about 7 days after last dose. (I know this is not the recommended method but wanted to give it a try so if it didn't work I could go back to dr with my results).
So question is I finished my week of EOD. Thursday was my last dose. I felt the best i have in a long time yesterday, but I am fearing what's to come. I have the metronome sound back in my head as of late last night. I had this the week I was off previously. Would this be the time to try taking some fluoxetine as a cross taper at this point? If so how long should I take the fluoxitine and then taper from that? Thank you.
