What hurt me, too, was coming down from the Cymbalta
- had bad withdrawals.
What helped me was to keep some food in there - soup, oatmeal, crackers, toast, and stay hydrated. Also, I didn't take the meds until night time and made sure I drank a glass of milk and ate SOMETHING with it.
It's rough, but it gets better, I promise. When you go back for your meds check, make sure you tell your pdoc - he has me splitting my 150 into 100 and 50 at 2 different times now to avoid some of it.
