Alright! So, I have been on almost every SSRI for anxiety and on every SNRI. I was on Lexapro for a while, but it stopped working as my body grew used to it. Since then, I've tried Prozac, Zoloft (bad reaction), Effexor (helpful but made my migraines worse). I did a 7 day trial of Cymbalta but it was making me so dizzy that I was sitting in bed crying from the spins.
I'm now on day 5 without it, and for some reason, I'm experiencing withdrawal symptoms: anxiety, brain zaps, feeling dizzy, nausea, intrusive thoughts and depression. Mind you, this anxiety is beyond what I experience. I also feel like I'm not "all there." My brain feels really slow. I was practicing yoga last night and forgot how to step into a lunge. How am i experiencing this after ONE WEEK of the med?! I was off of Effexor for 2 days before starting Cymbalta and that was giving me vicious withdrawals. I was on that for 6 weeks and felt like I was actually dying. Today would make day 11 without Effexor (long enough for the symptoms to be damn near gone) and day 5 without Cymbalta. It feels like the soul has been sapped from my body.
