I am going off cymbalta and thought it would be helpful to keep this journal as I know others have done. I have been on 60mg for at least two years now and went down to 30mg yesterday and started taking 20mg of cembalta which I have been on years ago. The reason that I am going off of the cymbalta is because I am so disconnected and I realize that....listen to this.... in two years I have moved 14 times and between 4 states. I am 34 years old and it's nuts that I have made some of the choices that I have. I knew something was wrong but didnt know what. Today although I have pain in my lower back (very unusual for me) and a headache, I feel more "alive". I have been emotional for the first time in two years but it's not really the sort of thing that would upset me normaly. Also my throat hurts... random.
