This is my second time in the past 5 years that I am trying to get off Duloxetine 60 mg. I am three weeks off after a 3 1/2 month taper. I am going through the hell that is Cymbalta withdrawal. The symptom that I am struggling with right now is irritability/anger and itchy, burning, prickly skin. I went through this 5 years ago. I saw my gynecologist first because of the body region where it was happening most. She sent me to a dermatologist who said it was contact dermatitis and prescribed two creams. The problem went away and I assumed the meds did the trick. I didn't think about it at the time, but I also went back on the Duloxetine as the side effects were just too much. Fast forward 5 years and here I am with the same problem and again getting off Duloxetine. Has anyone else had skin issues while stopping this med?
Any advise would be so appreciated.

Hi betterdays and welcome...

 

It might please you to know that plenty of our members have complained specifically about "prickly" skin. Some might go as far to say it is quite a common withdrawal symptom. Our eBook has a fair bit of information regarding the issue, but if you search the site, you will find a lot of stories from our members. The user that springs to mind is DT who joined us with this complaint;

The sensation will pass in time, but it can be a few weeks until you find complete relief.

 

How long were you on the Cymbalta for this second time around?
