It's been 6 weeks since I got down to 5mg and all hell broke loose. I went down to 2.5mg, and now I am dropping by 1 bead every two weeks until finished. I haven't felt well for the past six weeks and the prospect of not feeling well for an indefinite time in the future is very frightening to me. I just dropped by 1 bead last week, and I can't believe it, but 3 days later had my usual uptick in symptoms. My head is so foggy, dizzy, ringing in my ears, and depression. All from dropping 1 bead! I've got 14 more to go. How can I tolerate these symptoms indefinitely?
I am so worried I will never feel myself again.
Can anyone share their post-cymbalta recovery? How long was it after stopping that you felt "normal" again, without using other medications.
