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.
