I had very little problem with this. When I was nearing the smaller dosages and I felt a bit of a problem, I took one 300 mg. capsule of St. John's Wort.

When I finally got off of the last quarter of a pill (a little under 10 mg.), is when I started having some unbearable problems. After two days of that, I took a small amount of Cymbalta for a few days and that completely took away all of my side effects.

Scott,

I only took Cymbalta at 10 mg. for about 3 days (opened the capsules and estimated about 1/3 of the amount within). That's all I needed for the withdrawal symptoms to stop. I meant to continue and build up on the Cymbalta but I was having a hard time tolerating it. When I stopped the Cymbalta I was free of all withdrawal effects.
