I stopped taking cymbalta a week ago and may be in withdrawal.

"Is it safe for me to start using my CBD vape oil now? It is 18-1 concentration."


Cymbalta withdrawal can be debilitating and can last up to three months or longer. It is recommended to taper off the medication as opposed to abruptly stopping it. Either way, I would advise that it is safe to consume CBD but stay away from THC as it can induce anxiety during withdrawal. The CBD may help you feel calmer and ease depressive symptoms. I would recommend to start with a very low dosage of CBD (2.5mg - 5mg) and taper up depending on how you feel. I would also recommend collaborating with your primary care provider to monitor your withdrawal. More research is needed on medicinal cannabis and SNRI withdrawal.
