I was prescribed 20mg of cymbalta after having bad experiences with both zoloft and wellbutrin. I didn't like the emotional flattening, the fatigue, and the lack of motivation--turned my anxiety into depression!
Anyway, I asked my doc about going off and she said because I'm on the lowest possible dose, just to go cold turkey. And well, you know how that goes:
Last night was night three and I was up all night vomiting and having diarrhea. I have strange muscle aches and headaches that feel like the flu. My doctor (who OF COURSE has never heard of this before!) reluctantly prescribed 20mg again and I told her of my intention to count beads, like I read about here during my insomnia.
I see several threads about weaning from 20mg. My question is--can I decrease my beads more quickly because I've only been on it for 2 months? What would a proper weaning look like, in terms of percentage of beads weekly?
Thanks for any help you can provide!
