Cymbalta Withdrawal

I’m on day four of being without Cymbalta. Today things begin to steadily spire out of control.14975034912391174434513 My mood is depressed. I cry over just about everything. I feel like I’m being swallowed whole in this pit of despair. My brain is so foggy I can’t even follow the simplest of directions which in turn leads to more tears. I don’t quite know how to deal with these severe withdrawal symptoms. My pain level is hovering close to 8 and mounting higher with each passing hour. I feel loss. I didn’t expect it to be this horrible. This is what fibromyalgia and depression unmedicated looks like.

    Stay strong! My brain broke Sunday and I quickly go back on my medication. It sucks to think that I will be medicated for the rest of my life but it’s better than the alternative. Hang in there!!

      I’m back on and starting to feel better. I found out the hard way that being without it is much worse than being on it. I will make sure I stay on top of taking my medications and getting them refilled on time from here on. Thank you for your support!

    It is dangerous to quit cymbalta cold turkey. You need to taper off gradually or it can be really bad. Are you following any guidelines about how to stop? I am just concerned for you if not. I was going to stop taking mine as well, which turned into lots of trouble for me.

      I wasn’t deliberately trying to stop taking Cymbalta. I had requested a refill and it was sent to the wrong pharmacy. It took some tracking but my girlfriend was able to figure things out and I now have my medication. I’m relieved to get back on track. The withdrawals almost had me feeling suicidal.
