My dr put me on cymbalta,30mb for fibro, then after a month upped the dose to 60 which I guess is pretty common. After being on it for a couple months I didn't notice ANY change for the fibro and took steps to get off...getting off way to soon, I started having weird smells and the brain zaps, trouble sleeping, irritability...So, I got back on it at the 30mb for a week, then she said to dump half out for a week (or two) so I only did the week. Today is Friday. My last dose was Monday night. Yesterday I started having the weird smells again and then this morning noticed the brain zaps. I also have had terrible nightmares and trouble getting to sleep.
How do I get off this stuff??? Do I muscle through the brain zaps till they stop? How long does that take? I'm really irritated and want off this poison!
Thanks for any help,
