What should I expect? Nortriptyline and Cymbalta
Psychiatrist has prescribed me Nortriptyline and is weening me off of Cymbalta. What should expect in both cases? I hear horror stories about Cymbalta withdrawal. He said for me to start taking 30mg of Cymbalta (I've been on 60) and then go ahead and start Nortriptyline so I did last night and the first wonderful thing happened. For about a month now, I had waking up 3 or 4 times a night, until last night. I slept all night. Anyhow, today is my first day without 60Mg of Cymbalta.

I am on day 5 of the transition. I slept all day on Saturday (well I went to bed at 11:30 Friday night and woke up at around 1:00 on Saturday) and then Saturday night I went to bed at around 11:00 and woke up at 1:00 on Sunday, just to eat take a shower and then go back to sleep, and I slept from 2:00 until 4:00. I woke up to go to work today and so far so good.

Should I be feeling any other side effects yet from the reduced cymbalta? and what about the nortriptyline? So far, just the excess sleeping and heavy depression so far. Any ideas?

Hey I've been on Nortriptyline for years. All I know of Nortriptyline is withdrawals from cutting it off suck really bad! I've been feeling like Nortriptyline worked wonders at first but now isn't doing it for me mood wise. So by doctor's orders I am actually going to try switching from Nortriptyline to Cymbalta starting tonight/tomorrow. This should be interesting.
