Thank you for posting your query.

Cymbalta (duloxetine) is generally used for treating depression, anxiety, fibromyalgia and neuropathic pain.

It is a safe medicine, and does not lead to any serious side effects.

Regarding discontinuation, you safely discontinue it abruptly (cold turkey) after nine days of use.

I hope it clarifies. Please get back if you have any more queries.

Best wishes,
