Most drs phase in a new AD (Antidepressant) at increments of 25R% every week to 10 days as they reduce the old AD by 25% every 7 to 10 days. So for Zoloft this would be 25 mg increase each 7-10 days for 4 or 5 weeks. Of course this is just an average. Some are a little slower and some faster.
Your Cymbalta is at a low enough level there really shouldn't be an issue with them being taken together until you get on the Zoloft by itself.
Let us know how you do and please feel free to come back and vent, ask questions etc.

It would go something like this...
30 mg C
30 mg C with 25 mg Z for 7-10 days
20 mg C with 50 mg Z for 7-10 days
10 mg C with 75 mg Z for 7-10 days
100 mg Z
Now, some don't find 100 mg to be enough and I have seen others which got by with on 25 mg Z to handle their complete withdrawal.
It is trial and error. Be aware of any fevers as that is a sign of serotonin syndrome.
