It worked well for about 6 mos. Iíve spent almost the past 2 years trying to get off it. By far, the hardest script Iíve tried to kick. After two days without, I get so down, depressed, angry, easily irritated, negative and have morbid thoughts along the the familiar brain zaps. Life becomes meaningless and I couldnít care if I lived or died.

The withdrawal effects even from weaning off are so severe. That includes weaning off Cybalta and attempting to start Wellbutrin. 5 days is the longest, Iíve made it without it. I always go back to it after I canít stand it anymore. It affects my life, job and relationships.

The only benefit I get from taking Cymbalta now is avoiding itís horrible withdrawal effects. If anyone has any tips please let me know. It really sucks.
Anti depressants, so good, but WICKED to get off of. Wicked.
