I'm in the process of weaning off of Cymbalta and I'm being quite an asshole if I do say so myself.

I should have been done with it a week ago, but the depression/rage/electro-shocks were so bad, I've dragged out my weaning more.

I was actually about to extend it without my doctor's approval last Saturday. When I got home from picking up my last refill he called and agreed with what I proposed to do.

Now I'm taking about half a capsule every other day. I empty approximately half of the little pellets out of the cap and put it back together.

I have put more details in my blog if anyone is interested. (I'm looking, in a cyber-sense, at you Listener. It's a little salacious.)

I really wanted to know if anyone has been through this crap (I kinda know the answer is "yes" to that) and if so:
1. How long will this last?
2. Is there any way to cope short of hospitalization? Any way to ease the symptoms?

Thanks in advance to anyone.

This totally fucking sucks.

I really don't know about meds and how they go, as I was always too scared of them to take them. but i'm sure others here can share their experiences. i can remember kewy talking about med withdrawal, but she's not been on much lately... you could also do a search for posts on withdrawal and no doubt turn up a bunch of stuff that ppl have said over the years.

Are you implying that you think I'm someone who has a penchant for salacious details? :cunning: Who have you been talking to??? :o :P

j/k, hehe. :?: :kiss:
