Hi there ~
I understand your concerns. It is very unusual to have withdrawal symptoms
. Although it is rare you should go slower on the taper with the advise of your psychiatrist
. I hope you have informed your doctor/doctor's office regarding the taper that you are going through. Due to the withdrawal symptoms that you are having from tapering down on the dose of cymbalta you may need to go higher on the dose for a while and come down slower. You along with your doctor/psychiatrist are the best persons to determine how to go about reducing the dose. The drug itself does not last very long in your system, its half life is about 8 - 17 hours, meaning which you should have the medicine out of your bloodstream within a maximum of two days.
I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!
