I decided to get off of Cymbalta because it wasn't working for me anymore and the doctor wanted to increase my dose to 120mgs from 60. I stupidly tapered off in 5 weeks. I have now been off of it for 7 weeks and am still having the most God-awful withdrawals. I am experiencing severe anxiety, depression, nausea (I've lost 15 pounds), weakness ( from anxiety?), & I'm cold even in a 78 degree room.
Should I keep moving forward or go back on a 20-30mg dose and slowly wean from there? I am 67 and retired, thank goodness...I don't know how any of you can carry on while working and/or raising a family. Will my old brain ever recover? I have some decent days very rarely. At almost 2 months free of this stuff, should I keep on going?
Lots of luck to you all....glad I ran into this place! Thanks in advance for any advice...Carol
