Welcome to HW. I have just weaned off of Cymbalta and I have some residual side effects but I am able to cope with them and I do use a medicaiton at night for sleep.
I have been on AD's for many years but felt I was not getting good coverage anymore and wanted to go with AD's but continue my other meds.
If my med had been working I would have stayed on it as I believe if it is working for you it is a good thing. Of course this is your decision.
The SSNI/SSRIs are tough meds to come off of. I wish you the best.
I have taken Zoloft before. The first time I tried to go off it I felt pretty much like you did. The second time I was only off for 4 months.I was taking 200mg of it. The third time I got off I was off for 13 months at 200mg then had to get back on. I'm not going to go off it again I just can't do it anymore. I am at 150mg now.
