Discussions that mention prozac

Back Problems board

Deb, my doctor mentioned that with cymbalta if you stop taking it you will have immediate withdrawals within 24 hours. The med does not stay in your body like for instance prozac. You can stop prozac and 2 weeks later it is still in your blood stream which is why cymbalta is harder to come off.

Personally, I would not try to do this on your own and I would contact whoever is writing your scripts for it and ask for help discontinuing it.

Good luck.
