    Trying to get off of this poisonous drug. Need support and help!Down from 60mg to 7mg. Want to be DONE!!!!

Posted 23 September 2019 - 09:11 AM

Hi everyone, I am at .041 mg. Having a lot of trouble sleeping. i take this dose at night but will try it in the morning to see if it helps. My body chemistry is radically different then when I started taking this medication due to a complete dietary overhaul. I am grain free 100 percent gluten free for 14.5 months now. I know I do not need this medication as I once thought I did, and the Dr. who prescribed it did. So I don't want to take it obviously. I feel bad after I take it but I also know pulling the plug too fast is not an option with Cymbalta. So I am weaning and managing withdrawal symptoms. Strange things happening with my vision. Seeing flashes of something that isn't there out of the corner of my eye. This has been going in for at least 3-4 weeks. I read another post about this and it was a relief. I have major allergies so I am taking hydroxyzine. I have xanax on hand and I usually I take .5mg at night to help me sleep. I feel very irritated and listless. I am asking for input if maybe I should go down 2 beads instead of one to see if I can get away with it? I am going to try it for 2 days. I can easily ingest an extra bead if I need to. I wonder if splitting my dose in half and taking twice a day might be an option? .020/ twice a day....Thoughts?

Splitting the dose is an option. Going faster, bad idea. Stay with your plan of a one bead drop at a time. Hydroxyzine can help with sleep so you might take it before bedtime.

 

Your doing great so hang in there and be patient. You will make it.

Hi friends. Good morning:) I am doing okay. I couldn't find this thread so started a new one about beginning my split dose today. I waited until the weekend. Taking the Cymbalta at night keeps me up. But, I am going to see how I do on the 2 split doses and will check in. There is a lot of great information on this site. I have sorted around and found a lot of insight. Thank you all for the time and loving support you offer to all of us as a whole.
