i know i'm having an "adverse discontinuation reaction" to stopping cymbalta. but why is my sleep schedule so far off? i have been getting between 7.5 to 8.5 hours, and they feel like pretty normal sleep, but usually only between 7am and 3pm. whay would this happen? <!--IBF.ATTACHMENT_368996--><!-- THE POST -->

first welcome silverli

I don't know about adverse discontintio

Now let's get this straght, you have problems getting to sleep and 7AM->8.5 hours of sleep
I think a normal person would sleep 7 hours of sleep, sometimes thats not enugh so u also could sleep to 8 / 8.15 and feel either hungry or no appetite to eat.

I silverlily, I wanted to welcome you to Healing Well also.  We are happy to have you.  I am not so sure I understand what it is that you’re trying to say in your post.  You discontinued your Cymbalta, right?  That necessary wouldn’t amount to having an "adverse reaction" upon discontinuation of the medication if your only having sleep disturbances.  Adverse reactions are hypertension, hypotension, seizures, vomiting, basically potentially life threatening physical reactions.  Depending on what dosage of the medication you where taking, how long ago you stopped it and exactly how little sleep your getting per night, I suggest you speak to your physician regarding this.  Of course loss of sleep is going to increase or exacerbate any depressive symptoms so it is important to stay on top of your sleep schedules.  Please do let us know how it goes.  Take care
