Cymbalta Withdrawal Question
Dear Fellow CPers,
I hope today finds you having a good day.
Please don't yell at me for what I'm going to tell you, I know, I know.
I've been taking Cymbalta 60 mg, twice a day for several years. I was originally taking it for depression, but my doctor told me that it was also good for my pain.
Anyway, I misplaced, lost, my latest prescription for Cymbalta. There's a long story to this. I took my last dose on Sunday, March 21st, ten days ago. This threw me into an unexpected withdrawal. The good news is that I no longer needed it for either pain (joint replacement took care of that), and I also didn't need it for depression (a vagul nerve stimulator took care of that).
I've been going through withdrawal for the past 10 days, the whole nine yards. I've gone back and forth from sweating to shivering, the cold symptoms, and of course the lower digestive symptoms.
So, I'm at day 10, and the only remaining symptom is the lower digestive symptom. How much longer will this last?
I know that I took the long road to that question, but I'd really like to know how much longer to expect this.
Compounding this, I had a set of Botox shots for my tmj muscle spasms, last Thursday. I was able to hide the fact that I was going through withdrawal by saying that I had the flu, and then had the Botox side effects.
I must say that I feel great today, just tired of running to the bathroom. So, once again, how much longer will this last?
