Probably none: You probably won't experience side effects from discontinuing cymbalt the way you did. However, if you we're taking it to treat major depression, there is a chance that you may begin to experience some of the original symptoms again if you have stopped the drug to early. So, if you begin to experience sleep or appetite changes, or decreased pleasure in activity talk to your doctor.
