    Hi Sandy

     

    I really don't know the answer to this but I did find you a Cymbalta withdrawal forum where I am sure people there will be able to give you an estimate.

     

    I am just so sorry you are going through so much anguish over this.  Let us know how you are feeling in the days to come.

      hI again-I wanted to let you and others know that on the 4th week of withdrawal and 2 weeks on Prozac with Wellbutrin xl I am feel ing better! I am really beginning to feel like myself-and it has been awhile now that I can say that--this one has been a really tough battle but I have seen it through with the help of my husband, family(daughters) and friends like you and the people that have posted on the cymbalta withdrawal forums-it all helped so much-to know that I am not the only one going through all the madness-I often say to myself-why do I have to be like this=why can I not just go through the day and feel normal like most people do? I look at others and that is always the question to myself--guess it is just the idea of depending on a drug to keep you out of the pits of depression-I want more control then that--I hope I can realize that soon=that it is possible to control more than I realize I can-I need more tools to work with-  Anyway-I am happy to be getting back to myself-Peace-Sandy
