You are not alone. I do remember at least one member that went through Cymbalta compounding to withdraw. When they got down to the level you are at the drops were too fast and they finished up with bead counting.
I will check the old posts and see what else I can find.

I found about 20 or so references to members that used compounding pharmacists. Most did not repost information on their final outcome but those that did often made comments like the ones below.
Member - Vanilla - "I have been compounding the drug from 15 mgs to 10 and now at 10, am at home away from work, suicidal at times,and the withdrawal symptoms are there."
Poppylvr - "This time I had a compounding pharmacy make me up 10 mg capsules. I was able to go to 50 for several days, then 40, then 30, then 20, then 10. Last week I started trying to drop off the 10 mg/day. Holy Cow! SIGNIFICANT dizziness - driving is nearly impossible. Nausea, lack of appetite, and yet all I want to eat is crap - pure carbs (oh by the way I have diabetes too :x ). Napping brings me out of it for awhile."
In addition, I found that compounding pharmacists that members used performed to methods to make their preparations. About 2/3 of them dissolved the Cymbalta in something like PEG. The other one third made up new capsules by counting beads. Many also commented that their compounding facility would not make doses smaller than 5% or 2.5%. These final drops were very traumatic and many used bead counting on the very end of the weaning process.
I hope this helps with what other members have experienced.
