I'm weening of duloxotine after being on it for a few years. I'm taking one every other day for 2 weeks, and then every 3rd day for 2 weeks. it's definitely better than the time I had to quit cold turkey (pharmacy issues), but I still feel kind of... floaty without it. will go away or lessen as I'm weening? I'm about 4 days into weening

      duloxetine like most anti depressants isquite hard to come off :( you’re doing the best thing by weening gently! let everyone around you know you might be a little off for a couple months and treat yourself extra kindly (physically and mentally!) if you have the resources acupuncture can help with withdrawal symptoms in my experience :)

      i don't remember exactly what it was, but awhile ago i weened off an ssri and was really dizzy and nauseous for like two months 😞 i didn't have enough to ween off it as well as it sounds like you are though, so hopefully you'll bounce back a lot faster! i think withdrawals are just gonna be a pain no matter what for a little while :(

      Duloxetine f*ed me up badly after the second dose. Can’t take antidepressants.

      When I stopped taking Lexapro I had dizziness that lasted about 2 weeks

        @MJ4E I had a similar experience with duloxotine, but it didn't go away until I started taking it again, about 3 weeks
