Cymbalta Withdrawal

Every minute, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, someone starts their journey to be drug free or reduce current drug side effects with The Road Back Program. With free assistance and support, The Road Back Program is the largest out-patient drug withdrawal program in the world. Helping people be drug free since 1999.

The web site you are on now, The Road Back, offers information on how to get off Cymbalta, prevent Cymbalta withdrawal side effects as well as eliminating current Cymbalta withdrawal side effects. Many of you taking Cymbalta were prescribed Cymbalta for anxiety, general anxiety disorder, panic attacks or for diabetic neuropathy.

The Road Back is a member of California Association of Alcoholism & Drug Abuse Counselors (CAADAC).

Our assistance is free.

Since Cymbalta was introduced, we have helped several thousand people off Cymbalta. We know what we are doing and the process of handling Cymbalta withdrawal side effects and Cymbalta withdrawal can be quite simple if you allow it to be. If you feel like you have been harmed by Cymbalta there are additional avenues to explore. Click here for more information.

During 2013, our founder Jim Harper republished his bestselling book, How to Get Off Psychoactive Drugs Safely to include new scientific breakthroughs. If you wish to read the science of this program click here. A new browser window will open so you can return to this page with ease.

Let's get right to Cymbalta withdrawal and what you must do to get any relief. You need to take a few supplements if you are going to have a chance making it through this. These are the cold hard facts. After 14 million site visitors since 1999, we know what we are talking about.

If you are already reducing Cymbalta you likely know what head symptoms are. They can range from "brain zaps" (electrical jolt running from base of the neck up into the base of the skull, dizziness, sort of a swirling head symptoms are the most common. We discovered in 2004, that the right type of omega 3 fish oil will usually get rid of the head symptoms very quickly. Over the past decade we have refined the fish oil further and found the best fish and delivery of a fish oil for an even better result.

The omega 3 to use is called Omega 3 Supreme TG. This fish oil is made from anchovies only. No other fish have been added to the Omega 3 Supreme TG. This omega 3 is also in the triglyceride form and does not contain any ethanol in the softgel like 99% of other fish oil. The softgel has also been enteric coated, which guarantees the softgel will not breakdown until it is in the small intestine giving you the highest absorption rate and helps stop the "fish burp."

You should take 3 softgels in the morning and 3 softgels at noon if you are experiencing head symptoms. When the head symptoms subside you can reduce the omega 3 to 2 softgels in the morning and 2 at noon.

The Omega 3 Supreme TG can be found on Amazon.com.  Click Here

Were you prescribed Cymbalta for fibromyalgia or depression? You may or may not know vitamin D3 is critical for the pain reduction and can help with symptoms of mild to moderate depression. Roughly one half of the population has the genetic make-up which makes absorbing vitamin D3 difficult. Taking a Micellized (liquid) Vitamin D3 will give you a 2 to 5 fold increase of vitamin D3 absorption. Micellized Vitamin D3 is water soluble and delivered as a small particle in the intestines which allows for the higher absorption rate. We recommend a Micellized Vitamin D3 manufactured in the United States in an F.D.A registered and inspected facility. 1 drop of Micellized Vitamin D3 supplies 400i.u. of vitamin D3. There are 600 servings per bottle in this highly refined D3. Available on Amazon.com  Click Here

Withdrawal off of Cymbalta does not have to be difficult and handling current Cymbalta side effects can be resolved quickly.

In 2013, Cymbalta seems to be prescribed more for diabetic neuropathic pain than for depression or anxiety. No matter why you were prescribed Cymbalta, the drug is the same and getting off the Cymbalta is no different.

Side effects of the withdrawal usually varies from person to person though. Those taking Cymbalta for diabetic neuropathic pain usually suffer more ache and pain side effects, and I do not believe that comes from the pre-existing condition, but from the Cymbalta.

In 2013, The Road Back addressed the problem of tapering off delayed release medications. Chapter 10 of How to Get Off Psychoactive Medication Safely addresses delayed release antidepressants. Those of you taking Cymbalta for diabetic neuropathic pain should really benefit from the advancement of this program. The supplement Neuro Endure Mini has made all the difference in the world with tapering a delayed release antidepressant.

Our program is a step-by-step approach to getting off Cymbalta. Start by clicking the link at the top of this page How to Start. You will find links to all chapters of How to Get Off Psychoactive Drugs Safely on that page. At a minimum, read through "Nutritionals" Used on The Road Back Program and Time Release Antidepressant Pre-Taper.

If you are currently in the middle of Cymbalta withdrawal or happened to stop Cymbalta abruptly, read through the chapter Already in Withdrawal or Quit Cold Turkey. You can get your life back and you can do that rather quickly.
