I went with out food sleep and water in a meditation retreat and end up in hospital 9 months ago. Rather then letting me rest and contemplate my own stupidity, doctors put me on anti-psychotic medication and anti-depressants. Looking back on it I had a hell of a transition onto the medication. After deciding to come of all medication recently; as I think the doctors have been medicating me unnecessarily, I came off the first round of drugs with no effect (just a clearer mind), but coming of the duloxetine was another ball game all together.
I have been dizzy with brain zaps and dizziness only getting worse to the point where I have been in bed for the past 2 days. I only came off 4 days ago! I am glad I found this website, what a terrible drug.
I was on 30mg the last few months, 60mg before that. Anyway I will start with 10mg today (about 40 balls out of the home brand duloxetine capsule). And go up to 15mg tomorrow if not feeling any better.
Thankyou all for keeping this community! What a drug hey! I certainly would recommend people to avoid it. I can just imagine the poor people who are truly depressed them coming of this drug to face these side effects, holy goodness what where the regulators thinking allowing this drug. I really feel for all of you who have gone through such difficulties or still are.
