    Question Cymbalta withdrawls?????

    I am in the process of cuting down on My AD meds. I take zoloft and cymbalta, and just added wellbutrin.( to fix the side effects of the zoloft and cymbalta!) My doc wants to gradually cut down the zoloft, but since it was first AD( my security blanket) and it effects only the serotonin, it seems logical to me to keep the zoloft and get rid of the cymbalta, which effects the two brain chemicals.

    Does anyone know about withdrawl from cymbalta? I know it's fairly new, so I'm wondering if anyone has had to go off of it and how the withdrawl is.

    any med that changes the chemistry in your brain is going to have side effects, like all ADs it will differ from person to person in the severity and length. Also like other ADs the slower you cut down the easier it will be, hopefully.

    take care

    Thanks for answering trg, I was reading your other post about med cocktails, That's why I want to get rid of some of this stuff. I take some other meds for medical problems, and would like my liver to hold up for at least another decade or two. I don't want those years to be terrible though, like before any meds, so if I end up on a cocktailt that works, I'll be fine.
    Take care too
