If your not happy with the Cymbalta then you should change meds.
Yes, if you just abruptly stop taking it you may get withdrawl symptoms. Just tell your doc that you have had plenty of time on Cymbalta to make a wise assumption that it is not and will never be the right med for you.
Cymbalta doesn't work for me either. I told my P-doc that I wanted to try something different and that I had the right to do so. Don't let any doctor talk you into staying on any medication that is not working for you. There are a ton of different options. Explore them.
