My Dr. just recently switched me from Prozac to Cymbalta.   I am having hot flashes and then I get very cold.  I am not sure if it is a withdrawal from the Prozac or a side effect of the cymbalta.  But it lasts all day long.  Has anyone else experienced this?
I am also about to start with a mood stabilizer.  Has anyone had any good experiences on them?  I was on lithium a few years back but that did not work.
I just want to feel better.

Prozac was one of the easier SSRIs in my experience to taper. I think the longer half life?

I just went through cessation of Zoloft and found myself very cold and weird feeling for a week.

Once you're saturated with the Cymbalta that should stop if it is not a Cymbalta side effect.

Good luck with the mood stabilizer, I can't tell you how much better I feel after only 17 days.
