Hello--I'm new to this group. I'm being weaned off Paxil and onto Cymbalta. was 20mg paxil daily. Now I'm 10 mg paxil at bedtime and 30 mg Cymbalta at 6:00 in the morning for 1 week. Then, on Saturday, I'll be completely on Cymbalta at 60 mg every morning. I wake up at 5:30 am feeling so upbeat. then about 7:00, I start taking a nosedive. Today it was so bad I couldn't go to work. I cried, got near angry, had very dark thoughts. I had to be moving some part of my body at all times, rocking, tapping a foot, rubbing my thumb and forefinger together. I was wound like a top, anxious and I guess agitated (?? on the verge of angry?). Is this normal when transitioning? If this happens again tomorrow, do you think I should call my Doc (he's internal med. and psych). Any advice would be appreciated. This is new to me.

It is the same with people who I'm friendly with and who want to strick up a friendship -- I...
