My memory is kinda crap, but I'm pretty sure that I was first prescribed Cymbalta in 2004. Tried to wean off in 2013. Two months of hell. Gave up and went back on.
I can't believe that I've been on this drug so long. Sometimes it feels like it's impossible to get off it. I'm only taking 20 mg. It doesn't really help with my depression or anxiety, to be truthful. CBT, yoga, and lots of relaxation breathing help.
I only take Cymbalta, like I have for the past several years, because the withdrawal was horrific.
Nothing really to ask or say. Just disheartened and sad that I'm still on this drug and that it's been such a huge chunk of my life.
Every time I think about trying again to wean off, I chicken out. I don't want to go crazy again.
