Hi all thank you for taking the time to read this post , i have totally been off Cymbalta for 4.5 months now after a 10 year usage. I did a rapid withdrawal 5 weeks from 80 to nil ( I did not know then what I now know) and whilst I have endured the symptoms until now , I seem to have hit a wall. I am In the midst of a depressive episode and the pain in my hip and knees are debilitating. I know I have the effects of the lock down to contend with , making my moods terrible but the pain in my joints are constant . I am at the point of re starting my meds due to the situation but would feel I have let myself down if I do . I began Cymbalta for depression and never had the pain I feel in the joints . Could the pain be due to withdrawal and do I need to kick my Ass and say this as with all other withdrawal symptoms will pass.
Any insight or a boot in the ass would be helpful
