I have taken Cymbalta at 30 mg for 9 years. In March I tried to taper off it but went to quickly and got really ill. In May I tried it again going very slowly. I've been doing fine with that but I'm starting a new job next month and the anxiety is really ramping up. I take it for anxiety/panic attacks. It has really helped me in that way, even though if I'm really stressed an occasional attack can still break through. I know this is TMS and I hate that my mind is doing this to me. But I know if I have an attack at the new work place then my mind will remember this and they will continue. I'm considering going back on the full dose. I had decreased to 20 mg. I've been studying everything I can about TMS and trying to get into mindfulness these past few days, as well as continuing the SEP but when I get anxious the way I am now it seems like there is nothing I can do to soothe myself. I allowed myself to be happy when I found out about the job offer but that quickly turned into dread which is very depressing. Can someone heal from TMS while taking medication? I know that it just masks the symptoms but I don't know what else to do. My new work place is a very big and busy place and those kind of places can contribute to having a panic attack.
