Modern humans must learn how to relate to psychoactives
responsibly, treating them with respect and awareness,
working to minimize harms and maximize benefits, and
integrating use into a healthy, enjoyable, and productive life.

Cymbalta Withdrawal Nightmares

I have become increasingly aware (and disturbed by) the many cases of severe Cymbalta withdrawal symptoms. Including, but not limited to, 'brain zaps'!

I myself have been on Cymbalta for eight years. I am terrified to go off of it because of the physical repercussions. I cannot afford to miss work for months while recovering from a drug my doctor gave me.

No warning was given to me about ANY withdrawal symptoms whatsoever. I wish I had known what I was getting myself into.
