You will get through this...............I promise. I tried to go 72 hours without any Cymbalta and had a mini melt down on Sunday so I went back to the lowest dose every 48 hours for a bit.
Please keep telling yourself you will get through this.......
Remember Effexor is one tough drug to come off of for many people. You are not alone although I know that does not make it any easier for you.
My thoughts and prayers are with you.
Thank you Kit, I needed to hear that. What do you mean by meltdown? My fear is that my body will not recover from this, I've never suffered from such bad anxiety (not even before I went on the Effexor). Did your doctor tellyou how long the Cymbalta would stay in your system, even after your are off of it? My doctor said three days and then I shouldn't feel any withdrawal symptoms, I'm beginning to think he has no clue!
It just makes it so much worse when you're going on no sleep, everything seems hopeless.
I will also be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers, and keep in mind, Cymbalta is not nearly as difficult to come off of as Effexor.
I'm so sorry you are having a rough time. I think we've all been there or somewhere similar at one time or another and you will get through it! Don't forget that. We are all here for you. Are you feeling any better yet?
