Feeling uncontrollable rage (continued)

So yeah. Tired of going to a church where there’s so much money. In fact, I’m tired of living in a town with so much money floating around everywhere. The people here are some the rudest, short tempered, entitled, jerk-wads that ever walked the planet. It might as well be called Karen! 😁 but on a more serious note. I guess I’ve got rock bottom and kept drilling for oil to get rich because this is the lowest I have ever been with no hope of any help in sight! Does anybody else feel this way? Just curious because this is the #?!]% - fill in the blank. Now I’m too tired to keep typing. #Rage #Depression #CymbaltaWithdrawal #feelinghopeless #Fibromyaliga #Disability #feelingworthless #wheresthechurch #suffering #everythingsgoingwrong #CheckInWithMe


Cymbalta withdrawal headache

Can anyone share with me what the headaches were like during withdrawal from cymbalta? I have what seems to be a cervicogenic headache, but it's the worst one I've ever had. #cymbalta #CymbaltaWithdrawal #Fibromyalgia #PosturalOrthostaticTachycardiaSyndrome #hypermobileehlers-DanlosSyndrome(hEDS)


Has anyone found anything to take the edge off Cymbalta (Duloxetine) Discontinuation Syndrome?

Cymbalta has never worked for me but I have been on it for over five years. It hasn’t helped with my depression or my nerve pain or my fibromyalgia symptoms. But I tried once before to come off of it and it was so horrible that they decided I was suffering from Cymbalta Discontinuation Syndrome and I ended up back on it just to avoid that. But now it is quite likely causing me to have more frequent seizures, some thing I have started having In the past two or three years because of my MS, and could be interfering with my seizure medication and causing some other unwanted effects. There is no choice. I am down to only 30 mg per day now from 120, have been titrating off slowly for many weeks under the supervision of my doctor. And I feel completely and utterly horrible. Brains zaps, even more awful headaches and migraines than before, graphic and terrifying nightmares, I can barely stay awake just giving me the opportunity to have more nightmares, and terrible anxiety and awful intrusive thoughts when I am awake, constant nausea and dizziness… and so much more. I have almost every possible symptom. My doctor has no suggestions others than to just hang in there and hope that it goes better this time than last. But I don’t feel like I can tolerate this for much longer and I am not even completely off of it yet. Hoping for suggestions from those who have successfully come off of it. #cymbalta #duloxetine #CymbaltaWithdrawal #duloxetinewithdrawal #cymbaltadiscontinuationsyndrome


How long has #CymbaltaWithdrawal nausea/vomiting lasted/any tips for managing symptoms?

I have been slowly tapering for about a month from my 60 mg original dose, and finially took my last pill on Monday. I had bouts of nausea when I was down at 20 mg but since stopping I have had the worst nausea and vomiting (coming from someone with chronic acid relux that has been severe enough for vomiting often, may have #GastroesophagealRefluxDisease but unsure of official diagnosis), feeling very weak and barely able to walk very far without feeling horrible. I called my doc whose helping me taper and I hope I don’t have to go back on Cymbalta, but we’ll see what happens.

Has anyone had nausea/vomiting while withdrawing, and how long has it lasted for you? Do you have tips for easing/managing the worst of the symptoms? Thanks so much!

Anyone who has a Chronic Illness, have you taken Cymbalta?

I currently take cymbalta 90mg, have for a year, and it makes me feel horrible. I have extreme brain zaps/tremors/dizziness, palpitations, sweats, musculoskeletal pain, general flu feeling, ataxia, and this is when I don’t take it. When I take it, I feel the same, but less. Thing is, I felt symptoms and pain (not all the same to withdrawal symptoms, though. Similar.) even when I wasn’t taking Cymbalta a year ago, so it’s definitely not the sole cause of my pain. Does my medication aggravate my symptoms and cause me more pain? Has anyone had the same experience? #Undiagnosed #CymbaltaWithdrawal #ChronicIllness #ChronicPain #MyalgicEncephalomyelitis #Lupus #LymeDisease #Fatigue #PosturalOrthostaticTachycardiaSyndrome #Dysautonomia #UndiagnosedIllness #AutonomicDysfunction #autoimmune #ChronicFatigue #AntidepressantDiscontinuationSyndrome

I’ve been disassociating a lot lately, more than I ever have before. I went off cymbalta a few months ago and it’s been happening ever since (I tapered with a doctors help, but it’s been almost three months off). I don’t feel like much of a person and when I do I don’t feel like I’m really existing in the world very well, or at all. #Anxiety #Depression #disassociation #CymbaltaWithdrawal #cymbalta #Fibromyalgia #FibroFog


Anyone having terrible withdrawal symptoms after taking Cymbalta ? #cymbalta #CymbaltaWithdrawal #duloxetine

I was on Cymbalta for about 10 years and had to ween myself off of it quite fast because I couldn’t find a doc that took my insurance. I was officially off of it and I feel horrible.. extremely sick, irritable.. kinda jittery, my stomach hurts, my body is soo sore, I have a bowel movement almost five times a day, very forgetful! 😩😢 I feel like I’m never going to get past this! I caved today and took some Cymbalta my mom gave me but idk if that’s gonna even help at this point. I’m lost. finally seeing a new psychiatrist tomorrow.. any insight? TELL ME THERES LIGHT AT THE END OF THIS VERY DARK & MISERABLE TUNNEL


Work after cymbalta

5 days and I’ve been off cymbalta . I have experienced dizziness, nausea, irritability, hot flashes an mind zaps. I’ve been off work for this time and I’m afraid how I will react to situations when I return. My job is not a nice place to work. I got off cymbalta because I felt it didn’t work at all with my anxiety and anger. I’m afraid .... #afraid #CymbaltaWithdrawal #cymbalta #Anxiety #anger
