ok...met with my dr last Wed. and he switched me back over to Zoloft. He gave me directions on how to taper off of the Cymbalta and back onto the Zoloft. the following day when I went to take my meds, I noticed that I did not have the correct dosage of Cymbalta (30...all I had was 60) . I called the dr and they did not seem worried so I haven't had any Cymbalta since last Wed. I came off cold turkey.... and now I feel so out of control! Crying, snapping no yelling at my kids and having not so nice thoughts...I feel so inadequate and anxious/frustrated/jumpy all the time. Is this because of the lack of Cymbalta or am I having a nervous breakdown.... Please help/advice
Thanks,
Lisa

Hi Lisa,

Cymbalta is hsrd to come off of, but the zoloft should be starting to work. Though it could take four to six weeks for zoloft to reach full effect.

I hope that you feel better soon.

It could take up to a weak, but the side effects of withdrawal should lighten up daily. And the other medication should start kicking in. I went off effexor cold turkey one time. Big mistake. But once I got some other medication in me, I felt better. Best wishes...

Hugs, Karen...
