I have been on seroquel, cymbalta and wellbutrin for over a year. My doctor took me off of seroquel 2 weeks ago and I started having nausea. I came off of the cymbalta and wellbutrin over a week ago and the the nausea and headaches are almost unbearable. I'm sure it's a big shock to my system coming off of all 3. Can anyone tell me how long these symptoms will probably last? Is there anything I can do to minimize the withdrawals? I don't know how much longer I can feel like this.
I stopped Seroquel last October, and am only now beginning to feel like it might be out of my system. For months I had to drink 3 liters of water a day, but not any more.
I stopped Cymbalta slower, from Jan to March, because I was having "dread" attacks, which I now identify as panic attacks. I still have them sometimes. However, now I have another problem, which seems to be related to my pancreas. I am waiting for a test in October...I don't know how if in any way the Seroquel or Cymbalta relate to that, but I've been pretty miserable; can hardly get out of bed, and have pain in my left back all the time. If I don't eat just before going to bed, I wake up almost delusional. Don't ask me why, unless I am hyperventilating from pain, which makes me panic.
