Relax JSN. It is not the Cymbalta being in your system that is causing this. Cymbalta has a half life of 12 hours so about 4 days after your last dose it is gone. The problem is you are left with nerves that are altered and slow to repair. They have lost the ability to control their neurotransmitters because the Cymbalta has been doing that for them. This is what leads to all these different symptoms of withdrawal. Lack of control, sensitive nerves and a lot of time to heal. As far as your though process is concerned that is normal. Cymbalta affects two primary centers in the brain, the amygdala and the hippocampus. Unluckily the hippocampus is the center for fear and paranoia. This type of irrational fear tends to strike us all during withdrawal. If you do a search on this site for "emergency Room" you would be shocked at the number of us who have been to the ER because of being afraid of some condition or being afraid we are dying. It is a terrible effect of these antidepressant withdrawals, especially the SNRIs. Hang in there it will fade with time.
