Speak to doctor: Tapering should be supervised by prescribing doctor. Discuss reasons for want to stop this med. Cymbalta (duloxetine) is given for different reasons, eg., depression, anxiety , chronic fatigue syndrome, neuropathic pain. Be sure this is the right time to discontinue and alert your doc if symptoms reappear. I hope this helps. Best wishes.
