This is my third, yes third, attempt to wean off Cymbalta. Like the second time I tried, I am now taking Effexor (which my doctor says is like the parent of Cymbalta) because it comes in a tablet form that can be broken in half and quarters, albeit not easily. Still easier than bead counting.
So, I started at 12.5 mg on Wednesday. I definitely notice a difference. TMI but I've had a lot of diarrhea. Vivid dreams. Lightheadedness with this occasional whooshing feeling in my head.
I have support right now and nothing stressful happening in professional or personal life. Now seemed as good a time as any.
I'd like to use this site an additional support system as I go off this awful drug.
