I`m assuming this is the way to start a new thread. If not let me know. I also did great on the drug while I was taking it. Had no side effects. Lost a little weight. Thought this is great until the first time I tried to wean off. Papa died and I was in the weaning process(about 3 weeks in at half dosage 30mg a day. Had to give in and go back to 60 daily. My stupid PA simply switched me from Cymbalta to Wellbutrin without the easing off process. That led to the 1st manic fit. Found me a new doc and he made me take one there in the office. So I gave in again since my 2nd husband had just died. June 2008. Am also on .5mg Xanax 4 daily. Which he just increased from 3 daily to help with coming off the Cymbalta. My doctor said he just didn`t think I was as depressed as stressed. I have a house and land from 1st marriage which I rented to my nephew and he trashed while my husband was sick and I was run ragged to chemo and work and everything else. Had to redo it just after he passed as my nephew chose then to move out and leave me with that mortage too until I could rent it. I have a life estate in the house I live in now but step kids are being a pain. Just found out last week my mom`s cancer is back. It would be so easy to give in and go back on it but I truly feel if I do I will have to take it the rest of my life and don`t like taking it. I`m hyper enough and the cymbalta increased that in me. This is defintitely not a drug for a teenager!

Well another day in my struggle with depression and withdrawal from Cymbalta. Am down to 30mg every other day. Yesterday I had to deal with step-kids and they got really ugly. They could care less that it is not easy for me to deal with his clothes and other things. They could also care less about my mom`s cancer being back even though I cared for their father throughout his battle with cancer. He just passed last June and now will have to go through this with my mom while putting up with them wanting to make my life hell over some clothes. Have to force myself to go out. Will go spend some time with mom but that is not anything that will help my mood, but it is something I have to do. I will cherish every moment I have with her from here on out. Seems like it just keeps piling up. I know why people commit suicide as it just seems such an easy answer to a problem that seems insurmountable. Every time I think things are going to ease off something else comes up. If not for my parents would move away from this area. Sometimes geographical changes can help without being running away. I just hate sounding so whiney all the time. Is hard to be upbeat when you have so much sh** piling up. Today am having the dizziness and arm and hand tingling associated with withdrawal. Somehow I will find the strength and fortitude to get through all this. Hope anyone reading will respond if they please also anyone reading have hope stay strong and know you are not alone in your struggles. I know I don`t sound all that good myself but will help anyone in anyway I can. Depression is a horrible thing and none need feel alone. We can be there for each other.

Jezzie,

I am Kitt and welcome to HealingWell.  You seem to have some major issues going on and I am wondering if you have a therapist.  Also have you ever tried any of the online selfhelp programs?

the MoodGym CBT program is a free online course you can go through from the privacy of your home:

Here is the direct link:

Do look at giving it a try.

Take care and again welcome

Kitt

Thanks for the info. My sis has her masters in social work, I have my pastor and church however some things they just can`t help with since they are all so protective of me and cannot be impartial. I realize I am very blessed to have the people around me that I do but none have ever been clinically depressed so they can only understand so much. Thanks again for info.
