It is time to get to the doctor and let them know what is going on.
I have read on this board a few people that have experienced the brain zaps,and I am not sure why that is going on with cymbalta

They can give you something to help with this,I am not sure what but give them a call today.

Megie, Weaning off is a slow process, do not just stop the medications.  You physician should be involvedin the weaning process.  Also there may be another med that is a beter choice for you.

Please be safe and keep us posted.

Please don't say sorry for anything,that is why we are here. I am glad that you are feeling better.

Like we said,please make sure that your doctor is involved,why should you have to do this alone and be miserable?
