Long time anxiety sufferer. My most recent adventure is a wean / cross taper to Zoloft. I’m down to 20mg of Cymbalta and 25mg Zoloft (which helped greatly once before but pooped out on me). I'm experiencing very high anxiety, anger and sad bouts from the withdrawal.
I’ve been on cymbalta for a year and a half after lexapro failed me and my panic attacks started up again. Cymbalta has been just ok, no panic attacks just terrible constipation and my GAD hasn’t been all that great. Of course Genetic testing says Cymbalta and Effexor are “best” for me.
The test, along with my extreme high anxiety since the taper has me second guessing if I should have stopped the Cymbalta.
Should I have just lived w the few side effects? Sidebar, went off Cymbalta years back (tapered slowing to nothing) and had a huge breakdown so that also has me reluctant/scared.
Any advice is appreciated. Oh fishinghat, huge fan. Keep up the amazing work.
