Common Questions and Answers about Cymbalta withdrawal symptoms duration

cymbalta

thanks. these are allpsychiatric...lithium, lamictal, seroquel, cymbalta.
Otherwise, you just have to tough it out and hope it goes away. You are suffering classic withdrawal symptoms.
Continuing headaches, twitches, flu-like symptoms. I have read that this is all withdrawal symptoms. When I got aff Paxil there were no withdrawal symptoms once I was off. Now, with Zoloft and Xanax, I still am dealing with withdrawal symptoms. When I question the psychiatrist, who is not really tuned into me, I am told that Xanax is addicting and Zoloft is not. Zoloft was the worst drug I have ever been on.
If you didn't taper off, and stopped abruptly, that would explain the severity and duration of your symptoms. What you describe doesn't sound like an allergic reaction, but rather more of a sensitivity and intolerance, with severe side effects. Did you have similar symptoms on the other meds that you state you're allergic to? I wish you the very best and hope you're feeling better very soon. I cannot stress enough to you the importance of working closely with your doctor...
how long can this last, anybody have had long withdrawal from cymbalta or wellbutrin. it might be easier if i have an idea of how long i need to hang in.
I just had this overwhelming feeling to quit so I did and I had no idea of the duration of withdrawal. I guess you just gotta wait it out. Everyone is different but the reason I am still feeling like this is probably b/c I was on sub. for 2 1/2 yrs. then just jumped at a high dose. I know it can be very difficult, but I gradually see my energy coming back which is good cause I need to get back to work. I have heard this can last 70 days so I'm counting them down. If I can do this anyone can.
Various withdrawal effects may include shakes, shivers, diarrhea, nausea, and possible flu-like symptoms. Not all people experience will all withdrawal symptoms, and some people may experience others not listed here. The length of time withdrawal symptoms occur can range from a couple of days to weeks depending on how high your dose was and how long you were on the drug. Withdrawal symptoms can be reduced by discontinuing use of the drug slowly (i.e., gradually reducing the daily dose).
• If Ambien is used daily for more than a few weeks, abrupt discontinuation is not recommended or you could have unpleasant withdrawal symptoms. Ask your doctor how to avoid withdrawal symptoms when you stop using the medicine. • Immediate-release Ambien is used to help you fall asleep. The extended-release form, Ambien CR, has a first layer that dissolves quickly to help you fall asleep, and a second layer that dissolves slowly to help you stay asleep.
The flashes of light from posterior vitreous detachment and retinal detachment are generally high intensity but very short duration (flash of light and gone, like lightening). Migraines flashes are much longer in duration and often look like neon signs, looking through a waterfall, seeing a ceiling fan like light in peripheral vision, etc (many, many forms).
I'll have them doing it slowly medically, and I'll make sure I do the Thomas recipe. Maybe that will minimize things. I never heard that Cymbalta had withdrawal symptoms. (Another reason I'm ticked off!!) I was given it for off-label use for nerve pain not depression. I think I'll ask her to wean me off that since I don't think it does much for the nerve pain anyway. Maybe that will help to come off that first.
I have some of the rx left and have given serious thought to taking one and just asking my doc to start me on a small dose of something else that's not as hard to come off of. From what I've read on here a lot of people have had decreased to no withdrawal symptoms if they were able to take a second med at the same time they were coming off of Effexor. I need some sleep and to just feel like a human being again!
And then we went through my symptoms and added the new fun thing going on with my back and leg tendon system lately. Then he wrote out a referral to a team of Physiatrists (whom I went to once - not much they could do). I'll probably be set up with a new set of PT stretches to do every day I guess. But today, most importantly, I've finally and officially cut myself off from opiates. I'm done waltzing around with what is, to an addict like me, a very dangerous addiction with a bad ending.
Week three was a sort of plateau - most symptoms gone, except for sleep problems and debilitating fatigue. I thought surely week 4 would show some improvement, even if small. In fact, the opposite has been happening! The most prevalent issue is the fatigue, which worsens daily. It is almost at the point where I can' get out of bed for long. I had an important meeting the other day with a contractor at my house. I awoke that morning feeling worse than ever.
I would NOT go straight from Vicodin to Ultram without giving your body a chance to totally detox from the Vicodin because it may cause some withdrawal symptoms. I think Ultram is definitely a lesser risk than Vicodin for a person who has chronic pain. Unfortunately, I think Ultram does cause drowsiness but I am not sure how that compares with the drowsiness caused by Vicodin. Melanie, R.N.
Hey, didya' hear that caffine withdrawal is now considered a psycological disorder? Now that's a strong drug!
I HAD ABSOLUTELY NO WITHDRAWAL SYMPTOMS AT ALL!!! No headache, no nausea, no body aches (except normal pains). It is NOTHING like heroin at ALL! In fact...Ultram has been FDA approved since 1995, don't you think it would be classified in the same area if it was "that" addictive and dangerous? Also...ask ANY pharmasist...you can get ultram called into a pharmacy. ANY narcotic needs to have a hand written rx handed right to the pharmisist.
I've heard stories about people who taper down, but still have acute withdrawal symptoms when they make the last step and reduce their dosage to zero. Thanks!
