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?
