You have to taper from Cymbalta. Did you taper or just stop taking it? I was only on it 3 weeks, but I tapered by 1/4 every 3 days (doctor's instructions) and did not have any problems. I could not tolerate Cymbalta because it gave me horrible headaches. I did start a different anti-depressant while I was tapering - maybe that's why I didn't have any problems.

Hope you feel better soon.

Taper off slowly.....I was sick to my stomach and light headed for a few weeks when I tapered off gradually.
