  • Withdrawals from SSRI drug’s are terrifying. I was on Cymbalta for 10 yrs and my company changed insurance which did not cover this drug. Which meant that either I paid a thousand dollar deductible or no Cymbalta! This was something I refused to pay and absolutely could not afford. I could not get the insurance company to budge. I was scared because I have felt the withdrawals from just missing a dose from time to time. I explained to the insurance company that this was something that I could not just stop due to the severe withdrawals and then they acted like I was a drug addict for talking about the withdrawals. Over and over I called my insurance company back during the last month of my medication just praying maybe this time I was going to talk to someone that understood this kind of medication, but that never happened. The outcome was very bad and I am still trying to get through this by taking a different SSRI . It should be against the law for an insurance company a state plan at that to have the right to do people like this. They are not doctor’s not even close, my doctor’s really don’t even know what to do. I am at a loss but thank you so much for sharing this with me. This is something that I will definitely be passing on to my doctor.
