It’s now been 10 days since I stopped taking Cymbalta. If you missed my post about my awful, nightmare withdrawal, please check it out. I’m so incredibly happy that I am off of the medication and on Savella.
That said, it’s been kind of different. I thankfully got through the actual withdrawal by last Wednesday, but there are some lingering side effects. Mostly, I’ve had strange brain zaps, dull headaches, vertigo, and generally feeling off. I know it’s not the new medication that is the cause, I completely blame it on the cymbalta.
On the good side, I’m laughing so much more! My “old” sense of humor is returning! I feel so much looser and generally happier in life. And, I’m not tired all the time! Major thumbs up to all of these things. Honestly, I haven’t felt more awake and like myself in I don’t know how long.
Am I over the hard part(s)? That, I don’t know. I do think that I’m through the worst of the troubles I’ve experienced, but I know it’s likely not over. Cymbalta after effects can last for months in some people. So, who knows? I’m hoping it won’t be a months kind of lengthy ordeal though. I’m over our relationship and prefer it not be a crazy long breakup period. 🙂
So, I’m happy right now. That’s basically the best news in awhile. It seems that the reviews from Savella users reporting a positive result from the medication were right on target. I am feeling as though I’m getting my life back, feeling more like myself. And, I am looking forward to genuinely being happy with life again.
