I've been on Cymbalta for a few months now, but I started seeing a psychiatrist in addition to my primary care, and so my primary care physician has decided that she's not going to continue to allow refills on my cymbalta, even though my psychiatrist told me to stay on it (which I told her).  My prescription has been out for two days now and I'm withdrawing stupidly hard.  I've come off antidepressants cold-turkey before, but I don't remember it being this miserable.  I can handle it, but I'd just like to know: how long should I expect these symptoms?

I've tried googling, but all I've gotten are people saying ZOMG DON'T QUIT COLD TURKEY! which really isn't an option for me, so I just need a straight-forward answer.
