Experts in Prescription Drug Withdrawal
Cymbalta Withdrawal and Tapering Help
Cymbalta (Duloxetine) is a SNRI (Serotonin-Norepinephrine Reuptake Inhibitor) created by Eli Lilly in 1986 and after approval by the FDA in 2008 Cymbalta was prescribed for major depression, generalized anxiety, fibromyalgia and neuropathic pain. Duloxetine did not receive US approval for urinary incontinence due to the concerns over liver toxicity and suicidal events. The FDA experts concluded that Cymbalta could potentially cause hepatoxicity (liver damage) and QTc Interval Prolongation (interruption of the heart’s electrical cycle) but followup studies indicated no heart related concerns. 10-20% of patients state nausea, insomnia, dizziness and fatigue as the primary side effects, but dry mouth, sexual dysfunction and headaches were also commonly reported. The severity of withdrawal symptoms from Cymbalta was bad enough to warrant its own diagnosis ‘Cymbalta Discontinuation Syndrome’ and an FDA advisory committee report states, “Much anecdotal evidence has accumulated documenting the injury, distress and life management impacts caused by discontinuation of Cymbalta. The effects of discontinuation can be severe and extend for weeks or even months.” The prescribing information for Cymbalta states, “A gradual reduction in the dose rather than abrupt cessation is recommended whenever possible. If intolerable symptoms occur following a decrease in the dose or upon discontinuation of treatment, then resuming the previously prescribed dose may be considered. Subsequently, the physician may continue decreasing the dose but at a more gradual rate.” However, even a gradual reduction can cause symptoms that interfere with life and many find they need relief from the symptoms. Our team of experts utilizes slow titration schedules combined with all-natural Nutraceuticals to ease Cymbalta Withdrawal Symptoms. This is a low-cost program with proven results.
