my psychiatrist prescribed it to me to "take the edge off" of the jitteriness and restlessness that Cymbalta caused me at 60mg. I found that it was somewhat helpful, but the frontal headaches that Cymbalta (all ADs) causes seemed to increase in frequency. I took it faithfully for a few months (it seemed to perk my libido up a tad).

 

Then as I decreased Cymbalta, I stopped taking it. I think that is was helpful with the agitation/edginess of being on so much Cymbalta. I also took it for a few days the last time I tried to drop and hit so many symptoms that I went back up to 30mg. It seemed to help a little then, too.

 

1989 - 1992 Parnate* 

1992-1998 Paxil - pooped out*, oxazapam, inderal

1998 - 2005 Celexa - pooped out* klonopin, oxazapam, inderal

*don't remember doses

2005 -2007   Cymbalta 60 mg oxazapam, inderal, klonopin

Started taper in 2007:

Cymbalta 60mg to 30mg 2007 -2010

July 2010 - March 2018 on hiatus due to worsening w/d symptoms, which abated and finally disappeared. Then I stalled for about 5 years because I didn't want to deal with W/D.

I took a tiny amount early in withdrawal syndrome and it caused my joints to swell up. My wrists still haven't recovered from the injury I got then. It didn't help my withdrawal symptoms.

 

This is supposed to be an anti-anxiety drug, squirrel. Same caveats apply, if you're hypersensitive, you may get unanticipated results.
