One of the least understood processes in modern medical practice is how to do Cymbalta tapering properly. Doctors prescribe drugs, millions upon millions of prescriptions every year, without being trained in how to get off Cymbalta without putting the patient through hell and introducing significant risk.
Imagine training airline pilots how to fuel up, check all the controls, and take off perfectly, but neglecting to teach them how to land the plane. Starting a patient on a drug without instructions on withdrawal from Cymbalta or other drugs is quite similar to not knowing how to land the plane. The consequences of lacking these skills, obviously, would result in a crash in either case.
Some doctors are at least scrambling to voluntarily do non-certified courses and impromptu or weekend training sessions to try and get a handle on the problem of assisting their patients with how to get off Cymbalta safely. However, this problem cannot be laid entirely at the feet of medical doctors. It is not that reducing medication is an esoteric art. It is that today’s medical schools are simply not preparing physicians adequately. Adequate training on Cymbalta cessation help is glaringly absent from the current medical curricula. Whether one desires getting off Cymbalta or any other medication, the first goal might well be to find a caregiver that has expertise and knowledge in the process of withdrawal from Cymbalta, etc., rather than fall into the still too-common situation of finding oneself in the care of a prescribing doctor or even a clinic whose personnel simply do not have the necessary knowledge, experience and background to guide their patients safely and properly concerning safe withdrawal from Cymbalta.
The Alternative to Meds Center is the world’s leading facility in drug tapering and has helped thousands of clients getting off Cymbalta and other meds for over a dozen years. If you are someone who has tried to quit Cymbalta without success, we can help.
While more studies need to be done and the findings documented, these rates of abnormalities are higher in comparison to pregnancy statistics where the mothers were not on antidepressant medications. (2)
Considering these and other reasons one may conclude that trying to quit Cymbalta is a wise personal health choice. Be sure to seek competent help and guidance before stopping Cymbalta or other prescription medications.
Please contact the Alternative to Meds Center directly for information on withdrawal from Cymbalta. There is never going to be a one-size-fits-all when it comes to Cymbalta tapering that will be exactly right for each person. Instead, the best way is to carefully design a Cymbalta tapering program based on individual factors and the person’s health history that can be instrumental in making a Cymbalta taper not only safe, but surprisingly comfortable and tolerable when done properly.
