I was on it for a year before tapering off it. I was pretty sick physically. I was vomiting and had terrible body aches. My brain had no filter. I was say things to people that I would never normally say. It was a scary experience. I don’t like that class of drugs and Cymbalta is in the same class of drugs. I take Zoloft now and I feel fine and I am happy I made the switch. It may not be so bad for you as you aren’t on a high dose I don’t think, I forget what my dosage was but it was pretty high. Do your research the other person who said they were counting beads is something a lot of people do when having a tough time weaning off.

Can I ask how long the body aches lasted? I'm off it all for 4-5 weeks now and can barely move. Everything hurts. Back, legs, feet…will it ever end?
Thank you
