Question by Andrew: Prescription Drugs “Abuse”?
I have access to some prescription drugs such as cymbalta. I was wondering if it’s similar to things like hydrocodone where they don’t get you high, but when you’re not prescribed to it, it normally makes you feel chill, like some sort of other high. I was wondering if cymbalta makes you feel the same, or how it does make you feel when it’s not needed?

Best answer:

Answer by Tink
Cymbalta is a wicked drug. And I don’t mean that in a good sense. For starters it’s known to cause something called cymbalta withdrawal syndrome when taking it AS PRESCRIBED in as little as a week, and that can last up to a year.

Antidepressants aren’t something that can be abused for fun, and can be rather dangerous.
