Well HM, usually the second time around with the same benzo or ssri/snri is a little more difficult. But that is typically what happens, each person is different. Trintellix has a fairly significant withdrawal (by what I have read) but not near as bad as Cymbalta. Time will tell.
By the way, the next time you need to come off a benzo let me know. I know a technique (water titration) that allows one to come off benzos slowly enough to avoid significant withdrawal. Also, there are a couple anti anxiety meds that work almost as well and have no withdrawal. They should be tried first.

There are two other meds that have been used extensively that re NOT addictive nor do they have withdrawal. First clonidine. It controls adrenaline, goes to work in about 1 hour and has no withdrawal. Do not use with propranolol. It may lower blood pressure (as most anxiety meds do). The other is hydroxyzine. It goes to work in about 30 minutes and has no withdrawal. So not take it with Benadryl. These medicines are typically effective and can even be used at the same time as long as your blood pressure doesn't drop too low.
