Ihave been on cymbalta for 10 years. I tried to taper off but the side effects were like the worse flu I have ever had. I'm am depressed again and feel that it's time for a change. I don't want to increase dosage I want off. I have finally lost the weight I gained over the years on anti depressants and refuse to start gaining again. I'm bipolar so I can be without something. thanks for any help

Unfortunately, weathering some of the withdrawal effects is likely the only way you're going to be able to stop taking it.

Have you consulted your doctor? They may be able to help you set up a better tapering schedule that could minimize withdrawal effects a bit more.

Hi Inda, I was on Cymbalta for 8 years, it took me 18 months to wean myself off it slowly. Don't rush it, the more slowly you do it, the less side effects you will experience. I have now been off it completely for 6 weeks, and although I am still experiencing cymbalta withdrawal, the withdrawal process I am experiencing is not nearly as bad as some of the other peoples experiences I have read. I have since put myself onto Concerta for my ADD and depression, this is working really well for me. I have a friend with ADHD and bipolar, she is also on the concerta and something mild for her bipolar. I suggest you contact your doctor to discuss what he can do for you.
