Today is day 9 off cymbalta. This has been the worse thing to happen to me. Cymbalta was great in some ways. I was happy all the time to the point of not knowing that there were times I should not have been happy. It makes you zone to feel nothing but happiness. Its a happy pill. I have gaines 45 pounds in 6 months and that is part of why I started it because the Lexapro I had taken before had made me gain as well. I also suffer from anxiety. My doctor said it was great. My aches and pains stopped like my back pain and leg pain from being overweight to begin with but I still could not concentrate and was not in check with reality. When I decided to quite 9 days ago cold turkey I thought why ween off I can do this. I use to be one of those people to laugh when I would hear about people going crazy coming off their anitidepressant but now I know how they feel, the withdrawal is terrible. I thought I had the flu on day 5 , fever, sweating, feeling overwhelmed out of control crying, shaking all over. The worse of all of this is not what I have endured but what my family has gone through. My husband doesnt know how to handle the mood swings going from a rage to crying and we have a 4 year old who is probably affraid of me. I'm so ashamed of how I have acted but I had to confide in family and friends becuase I wanted someone to be checking on me. I haved decided to give up antidepressants and allow GOD to help me because there is no problem to big for him. This is a terrile thing to go through and I'm thankful I have made it 9 days. I have no desire to every take this drug that has almost made me have a MELTDOWN coming off of. Thank God for my husband, sister, best friend I work with and my mom and daughter who have been through every day with me.
Thank you for sharing your experience I have now been off the cymbalta for a couple days and my poor husband thinks I am crazy.. I am also gone to try and push through with god by my side to get me through and stay by his side.

Wow, I am cymbalta 60 mg and reading these posts have sure explained a lot, I have the brain zaps, and get them really bad if I am late taking it. Also seating, memory issues, and not sleeping . My depression due to chronic pain and being useless has gotten worse, and now I am trying to find something better to help me deal with it. What else can I take . Now I am freaking out about going off the cymbalta

I've been on Effexor from http://goo.gl/TRCx1y only one week but am cautiously very optimistic. Prior to this I was on citalopram but still feeling very low and sleeping poorly, feeling like I needed to be in bed 12-16 hours a day. Now I am waking naturally after only 8 hours sleep and finding it much easier to concentrate at work. I can hardly believe it is working so quickly but I feel so much better. I've had no side effects.

Take your virus-ridden scam site and shove deeply up "where the sun don't shine."

I didn't get them until about 3 days of quitting cold turkey. It lasted about a week. It was disconcerting because I didn't know what it was. I had packed my bottles and wasn't paying $300 for more!
I never started again, I didn't realize how foggy (and stupid) they had made me.

Just quit when you're ready. If you can get the lower dose 30 mg from your doc and taper that's a thought but quitting you're uncomfortable for a week with the zaps (they get less frequent and not as strong each day) then DONE!

ur a dumbass, firstly klonipic IS NARCOTIC. CYMBALTA IS NOT AT ALL NARCOTIC. IT IS FOR DEPRESSION, IT WORKS ON UR BRAIN. DUH, IF U ABUSE IT, DUH, IT'S GONNA MESS U UP. THAT GOES FOR ANYTHING ON EARTH. ASK GOD..WOULD HE RATHER U BE ON A NARCOTIC, KLONOPIN, OR A BRAIN STIMULATING ANTIDEPRESSANT? UM, IM PRETTY SURE HE'S SAY NOT THE NARCOTIC. SO U R IN THE DARK COMPLETELY
