I am on 60 mg of duloxetine (generic Cymbalta) and want to cross to another AD that is more feasible to taper off of. Cymbalta requires either bead counting or weighing. My duloxetine is made by Citron from India and the beads are irregularly shaped and even some in pieces, so that eliminates bead counting.
I have purchased 2 Gemini scales from Amazon, neither of which is accurate or will even calibrate accurately. So, that eliminates weighing beads.
I want to cross from Cymbalta to another AD and then taper off. Has anyone done this successfully and which AD did you cross to? Since Cymbalta is a SNRI, there is a risk of serotonin syndrome in crossing to a SSRI. So, it's very tricky. I hope to hear from someone who had done this. Thanks in advance for your help!
