    There is no support for you. Your on your own. Make sure you check your ALT and AST are good with blood test.  This drug mimics depression. I stopped it cold turkey. 1-2 months no should be ok with less symptons. This drug should be banned.

      Everyone has different symptons. I probably had the worst.  I follow in 1% of fatal. I was close to death.  If I kept taking this drug it would have killed me.  After 6 weeks after symptons showed up my doctor odered blood work.  My ALT was over 700 a regular alt is 24-60  I believe.  Just a few bumps on the liver the doctor remarked also he said keep taking the drug it will kill you .  So I went off it. No support at all

    I fought with my doctor to get prozac while experiencing horrible.brain zaps and depression. The prozac kept the brain zaps to a minimum and helped with the depression. I wouldn't suggest cymbalta to anyone I know.

      I was on Prozac for 10 years and my Doctor felt it wasn’t working anymore. She put me on Cynbalta. It was a horrible 3 months so one day I woke threw the Cynbalta away and went back on the Prozac. Well I guess now I went about it the wrong way.  This withdrawal is debilitating. They say it can last months !!!!
