i had heard of the horrible withdrawals w/ effexor and i know that cymbalta is another dual reuptake drug, so i can imagine that the miraculous relief i have found might be too good to be completely true. can anyone tell me how to taper down. i took a 20 mg dose after taking 30 mg for a while and i was completely nauseous. i was surprised that those 10 mg made such a difference- now i am scared to try and reduce my dose and try to live w/out it. it's a wonderful drug for my fibro, but i have no sex drive at all. what does a girl do?
