I have put on weight because of it and I feel angry with myself while I’m doing it and after but I can’t stop.
I’m hoping someone has a solution for this. I hope I’m not alone

Hmmm, I was just remembering that I read a lot of posts about water retention/salt cravings. Especially with the ladies. I know urinary frequency often occurs during withdrawal maybe that has something to do with the weight gain. If so then it should fade with time. Anyway, just threw that in there for what it is worth.

I found these posts that you may find interesting. I also found a lot of posts concerning weight gain due to water retention and frequest urination.
Jillybean - Weight gain-Dr was adamant my weight gain is not from cymbalta it is suppose to suppress appetite. I barely eat so my weight gain is not from overeating!!!
Bon Bon 54 - The overeating has got to stop and this is a good wake up call in this area. I appreciate all the input from you and others here. As you all know, you are not thinking straight when ears are ringing and brain is buzzing.
Robyn-Amber - The overeating is still not under control. It's very disconcerting. It is still one of those standing-outside-myself things. But, I'm going to use two phrases and hopefully break that: "It's all about the self-denail, baby" and "Every calorie counts." Wish me luck on that one.
Tuke - I'm roughly trying this while I detox. However, I also seem to taste food more than when I was on Cymbalta, so I'm kind of overeating. And I'm going to the bathroom a lot. Don't know if that's the diet or the lack of Cymbalta.

Hi there. I am cross-tapering and gave gained weight I believe the food craving are due to the nausea and anxiety. I know that I can't diet while dealing with this so I figure I'll have to wait and take care of it when I am done. I have been going on lots of walks though and that seems to help.
