Dr. Ed Wilfong :

It depends on dose and duration of taking cymbalta. Many people can just quit without side effects. If you make it 3-4 days w/out adverse effects, you are likely fine. It is not withdrawal, just adjusting to different chemistry. You are at risk for relapse of whatever you were taking cymalta for, but I have too little information.
