I have had a good bit of experience with Cymbalta. It is the ONLY antidepressant that has worked for me. I am one of those people that have a lot of trouble with these meds and if the side effect is listed, I seem to have it. I did go off of it once with NO trouble. I am not sure where you got your info from.
However, I am back on it now and it works great except I do have headaches at times still, I think some are stress related, and I do not sleep that well. It is a trade off for me, because it stops the panic attacks and like I said really helps my depression. It does reduce my appetite, which is a good thing for me. I need to lose weight and I am trying to. If I could just sleep better, I would feel better too. I tried Trazadone for sleep and it was awful. I had terrible bad dreams and felt hung over the next day. I only tried it 2 days.
So I think that probably overall Cymbalta is the best thing that has come out for me.
I know there are meds to help with withdrawal symptoms, if you should ever need them.
