Sounds good to me too. Good luck with the transition. Let us know how the cymbalta works for you. I took 375mg of effexor daily for many years. about two years ago I switched to pristiq. Did it in a similar manner as you did. It worked well. I think as long as you have another antidepressant similar going into your system, the transition is rather smooth.
Take care, and keep us posted as to how you are doing.
