When my pdoc took me off of Cymbalta it
was pure H*ll, but he didn't do it
like you are doing it
. I went from 60 mg to 40mg to 20mg to 10mg to 0mg - over 45 days. It wasn't fun, but you can't just drop off of Cymbalta. You have withdrawals like LCC said - heroine addiction. I had sweats, vomiting, nauseau, swimmy head, dizziness, clicking in my head (I felt like there were bugs crawling under my skin), electric shock sensations, and insomnia then excessive sleep.
