Welcome to the board!

From what I have been told by my doctor, it is very important that a "doctor" wean you off a medication, please don't try to do it yourself because you can have serious side effects.

Hello, I was on cymbalta briefly and coming of of it wasnt too bad if I recall correctly. Everybody responds differently though.

I too was on effexor, and weaning off of that was THE WORST experience in my life.... lets just leave it at that .

Why are you getting off your meds?
