Tapering from Cymbalta/Duloxetine diary

Postby stormguy » Sun Mar 24, 2013 7:53 pm

Hello Guys

I recently visited my GP with a view to tappering down from Cymbalta/Duloxetine...I was taking low dose 30mg for around a year. My GP reduced my dose to 20mg!!

My GP'S advice

Take 1 20mg tab every day as normal for the next 7 days
Then 1 20mg tab every other day for the next 2 weeks
THEN STOP!!!!!

Im not taking any viatamins or supplements

Day 1....Feeling ok!

Day 2....Feeling good!

Day 3....Feeling good!

Day 4....Feeling good!

Day 5....Feeling slightly nauseous and irratible....But still ok overall!!

Day 6....feeling slightly nauseous. But still ok overall!!

Still at work :)).....most important though still no brain zaps that I have read alot about. I am happy with things so far !!

Day 7.....Feeling good!

This will be the first missed dose tonight wey hey!! feeling good about this taper..

Day 1 after missed dose and still feeling good!!
Got to thinking should I just quit now!! Hmm then decided to stick with doctors orders ...lol and not try and rush things. Took dose after first missed dose.
Day 3 still feeling good

Day 5 still feeling good...slightly irratible

Day 7 feeling irratible and nauseous.. But still not too bad

Day 9

Do they come in capsule or tablets format? If capsule I personally would open the capsule and gradually remove more grains each day until there is nothing worth taking in the capsule. I did this when I came off veneflexine. If you are managing with your GP's advice then carry on x

Do it as your doctor said and not as other person said by opening your capsules. That is dangerous as you don't know the amount your taking.. If you having with drawal systoms go see your g.p who will alter your dose to come off the drug never mess with meds unless ur quailfied to do so.....

Hi
I agree with Kazza, if you are having problems with withdrawals symptoms go back to see your gp they might wean you more slowly off them. :goodluck1:
