Hi all - I'm new here and am grateful that you are all out there. Not being alone goes a long way when you're in the middle of this nightmare
3 months ago I started tapering off of 90mg of cymbalta with the help of my internist. 4 days ago I took the last step from 30mg every other day to zero and have been in hell ever since. The usual: brain zaps, headaches, nightmares, confusion, ears ringing, weeping, etc etc etc. I had symptoms at each taper level, but this is definitely the worst. I'm getting the impression from reading the posts that the 30mg every other day was not such good advice... but I'm so tired of this that I don't want to go back on any of this evil drug if I can avoid it. I'd rather ride it out at this point.
So my question: how long does it take for these symptoms to go away?
