Did you see slide #8 of the presentation? I love it. It points to the line in the Cymbalta literature that says "You should not break, open, or chew the capsule" and responds with, "Opening the capsules is required to taper!"

> i was told by both my pharmacist and my doctor i couldn't do this (with cymbalta, but turns out plenty of people do). i wish they had been able to help me at the time. instead they just said take the lowest dose every other day and then every third day. that was (unsurprisingly) very unhelpful, and just made things worse.
