I have now had 2 failed cross tapers since starting in December 2018. First cross taper from Cymbalta to Prozac was too fast and caused terrible withdrawal when stopping Cymbalta. The second cross taper over a longer period was unsuccessful as well. During both cross tapers I felt very unwell with taking 2 drugs at the same time even on low doses. I have now stopped cross tapering and have stabilised on Cymbalta 30mg and have made a decision to stop Cymbalta first before considering any other antidepressant.
Can I have some help as to where to start? I’ve read about bead counting on this website but I don’t know how to open the capsules and what sort of taper schedule I should be on. I really need step by step instructions. Any help would be appreciated.
