New Here - Male Side Effects
Posted 01 September 2018 - 01:05 PM
The sexual side effects basically are decreased libido, and a struggle to orgasm. I’m sexually active, and I feel like an old man. I’m in my mid 30’s.
Other than those two huge issues, the drug works as its suppose to. Unfortunately, the urinary issues, and the sexual problems, are too important for me to ignore. As a former alcoholic, who experienced intense alcohol withdrawal, the idea of experiencing withdrawal again is terrifying. I had already experienced shakes, nightmares, insomnia, hallucinations, and spider hands (as I call them).
My doctor, who is not the one who originally prescribed me on Cymbalta, appears genuine in helping me get off of it. My mother’s experience in tapering off wasn’t good, and we’re trying our best to do this right.

There are a couple of ways of handling it. You can cross taper from Cymbalta to a different antidepressant like Lexapro, Prozac or Zoloft that are easier to deal with OR you can bead count. There are around 300 little beads inside each capsule (it varies from brand to brand) and you take 2 or 3 more beads out each day. Both have their pitfalls but either can work.

If you think that you need to be on antidepressants, cross tapering to one of the 3 that Fishinghat mentioned is a good solution. Should you want that, we'll show you how.
If you want to get it over with, bead counting is the best way. If you're on 60, you may drop to 30 with no problems. Then you bead count from there unless the 30mg is unbearable then you start at 60.
Drop by anytime for more support or information.
