Question Weaning down from Cymbalta then on Savella

Good morning. I've been on Cymbalta for 7-8 years for my fibro & chronic depression. My neurologist wants me to try Savella as some fibro symptoms have become less manageable (leg pain primarily).

I'm on 120 mg of Cymbalta & have been for years. He had me taper to 60 mg for 14 days then I'll start Savella. I've been on 60 mg now for 4 days.

Anyone have experience with weaning to half the normal dose of Cymbalta? How about Savella? Anyone find more success on that than Cymbalta. I switched from 1200 Gabapentin to 1500 Gralise recently also.
