Cymbalta Withdrawal

I’ve been on Cymbalta 60 mg for so long, I’ve lost track of how many years it has been.  My best guess is 7 years. I started tapering down a week and a half ago.  Each morning, I take 10 beads more out of the capsule.  Tomorrow, I will be down to 30 mg.

I’ve noticed today that I felt flu-like so I took some ibuprofen.  Every now and again, a wave of nausea will hit and go away.  My eyes are dry, but really that is nothing new since I have Thygeson’s SPK.

I’ve been taking daily doses of Omega 3, Flaxseed oil, Ginger, Gingko, Garlic, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Krill Oil with evening primrose, Chlorella, psyllium, L-lysine, whole food organic vitamins, probiotic, and magnesium and I am eating as much organic and raw food that I can.

From what I have read, the side effects coming off this drug are horrendous and I have been praying for wisdom to counter these effects naturally.

I am taking it one day at the time and if I need to continue 30mg for a few more days then start dropping again, I may do that.  I’m not going to rush it because I do not want brain zaps and emotional breakdowns like I have read so many people endure.

Victory happens one day at a time.
