I am not sure how long it takes, I have read about people still getting brain zaps months later. It would also depend on how long you had been taking it.
My new PM doctor suggested tyring Cymbalta for both the pain and depression of chronic pain. I am already on Celexa and actually am kind of leary of trying Cymbalta just because of all the horror stories I have read.
Somewhere in the chronic pain forum or the depression forum there is a thread titled CYMBALTA, THE EVIL DRUG. You may want to go check that out to get more information...it has probably been almost a month since it was posted so it could be kinda far back in the pages.

To handle yourself, use your head...to handle others, use your heart
I'm going to smile like nothing is wrong, act like everything is perfect, and pretend its not hurting me.
