#WeekendCoffeeShare: Still Withdrawing

Thank you for stopping by for coffee or tea. I have spent the last 2 weeks withdrawing from Cymbalta. Still don’t feel too well and have 2 more to withdraw from. I don’t know how long this whole event is going to take.

I haven’t done much because in addition to the withdrawal the teeth and gums started to hurt something serious. I just spent $400 on dental work and one more cleaning to go. No dental insurance for last 7 years.

Have a great week and God bless everyone.

  2. I’m so pleased to meet you and now following two of your blogs. My son has mental illness and I suffer anxiety and at times suspect I have fibromyalgia or rheumatoid arthritis. At any rate, what the mind feels affects what the body feels. I wish you the best on withdrawing from the meds.

  3. I couldn’t take cymbalta. It seem to help until I started having allergic reactions.. Sorry about your dental problems. Good luck! Think Positive!
