Cymbalta Withdrawal Symptoms
What to Look Out For


Cymbalta withdrawal happens when you have been taking Cymbalta for a period of time and you stop taking it abruptly instead of weaning yourself off of the med in a slow, methodical way. It is always recommended that you taper the use of any antidepressants over a specific period of time, as prescribed by your doctor.

Cymbalta withdrawal symptoms depend on how quickly you stopped taking the medication. What is tapered off over time? Or did you just stop taking it altogether? In both cases, withdrawal symptoms will be present. However, when you simply stop taking it, the symptoms can be more severe.

Symptoms When Gradually Quitting

In studies that were conducted, the following symptoms were quite common and similar to Cynbalta side effects.

  • Feeling dizzy

  • Feeling nauseous and or throwing up

  • Feeling anxious or irritable

  • Having difficulty sleeping

  • Experiencing diarrhea

  • Excessive sweating

  • Unusual prickling or itching sensations


    Symptoms when Abruptly Quitting

    When you just quit all at once, you are likely to experience the symptoms listed above but you may also encounter other withdrawal symptoms such as the following:

  • Feeling generally dissatisfied with life and lethargic
  • Severe mood swings or feeling excessively happy
  • Feeling agitated and confused
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Experience seizures How severe these symptoms are just really depends on how you wean yourself off the meds and what your original Cymbalta dosage has been. While some have reported mild to moderate experiences, others have reported these symptoms to be quite severe. So, if you have a choice, it is much better to wean yourself off the medication gradually to minimize the experiences of withdrawal.
