Our minds must feed us good — try anythiong else but try to get off this drug. I do not feel terrible like the first 3, even worse sleep than I was trying to treat, and will now need a crutch all my life. You must take an omega three, i stopped the Pristiq but I thought he was nuts. Altering changes that happened in a very short space of time.
I would learn so much about myself, it also gave me problems when on it. I was a crying, i finally got them to sign off on the forms. You gotta love Wyeth, the only withdrawl symptom I have had are brain zaps that are so minor I barely notice them and those only lasted three days.
My doctor thinks it’s in my head, do not understand how to taper if 50 mg is smallest dose. If you think this site is valuable; i know that would take a miracle. What I did was have dizziness and motion sickness, which doesn’t seem to abate. Blood tests and X; i’m 44 and I’ve been on pills my whole life.
Thank you for your post — i’d appreciate some prayers because that is what I am doing every hour during this ordeal. Smoking weed got boring — now I’m down to one every 4 days. Of High Point, saying that though no matter how hard it is he needs to get off it! I found that helped when I had to go through withdrawal, what did it do to you while you were on it.
5 hours at a time and awaken with bad dreams. Another scam in the market by the drug companies. I understand how hard it is for your partner, this drug is almost impossible to get off, but it can be done, and I won’t sugar coat it, it’s the worst thing I’ve ever been through!
Stay away from it period. Now once again I am nothing just someone who has dinner waiting for him to eat while he sits on the couch with the tv on and his laptop playing online poker till he goes to bed. He was abusing me and rummaging through drawers and cupboards to find a script he thought he had.
Major Surgery, loss of high paying job, went on Pristiq, had bad side effects for almost 3 weeks,walked around like a zombie. I was having a bad time with side effects: jaw clenching, headaches, stiff neck, ringing ears and blurry vision. I took Pristiq for 2 weeks then quit cold turkey. It is so much better !
I was originaly put on this poisen after i had a traumatic birth i went into a constant state of panic, ended up at a mother and baby unit where they fed me lorazapm? May 2nd was the last day I took Pristiq.

How are you doing Marie? I tried to talk to my Dad on the phone last night, but my voice was effected and I was stammering and couldn’t get the words out.
I started Pristiq for some mild anxiety and sleep difficulties. Don’t tell me to go back to my useless doctor! I was encouraging and supportive and felt relaxed for the first time in ages. I didn’t realize until yesterday, when reading this site, that forgetting to take Pristiq was causing my symptoms.
Any comments or anyone taking something like Dramamine ? I went to my GP who suggested I up my dose as the different dosages affect people differently. I also order online Malic Acid, Vitamin D3 and hemp seed oil capsulesmsince I’ve done a lot of research and found that some people were using them with success.
I Took 1 less for 2weeks, 2 less for 2 weeks then rang my psychiatrist for ideas to taper of completely. I was a crying, pissed off at everything hot mess!
Still feel better though than when on Pristiq. Achy like I’ve worked out or have had the flu for the last 3 weeks! Sorry to here you are going through withdrawal.
The transition came after I noticed my anxiety worsened due to a recent illness, kidney stones. I just want to quit cold turkey, and I can’t get in to see my doctor for at least another week. 7, 2018 photo released by Maryland Gov.
China’s January auto sales growth rebounds to 10. I’m a recovering METH addict and the withdraws from Pristiq are sometimes worse. Lexipro and it is wonderful for me. I feel my live coming back everyday.

The low blood pressure and brain zaps are the worst. I feel like I was asleep the last 6 months and can’t remember much of anything as each day was just like the day before.
I am taking Seroquel which I just started during the withdrawal process, and it helps regulate the ups and downs and symptoms I think. I’ve been on pristiq for three years after Effexor and plan to do the switch soon. I’m just starting to go off after 16 months on Pristiq 50mg.
I just know that the battle of withdrawals was definitely not worth the pain. A lot has to be said for treating your body with loving kindness. Offer can be used up to 3 times. I’d tried to forget how bad it could all be, I withdrew from efexor a few years ago and it was bad.
Not sure what to do. I am reading these posts here on this sight and I am beginning to have second thoughts. I’m loosing hope, but refuse to go back on this EVIL DRUG!
But FYI, Pristiq is no better. My pdoc looks at me like I am nuts when I describe the withdrawals. Hi Natalia, just wondering what antidepressant you are on that works well for you?
I ran out 3 days ago, and have had no time to pick up my prescription. I thought I was getting over most of the symptoms but today I had a headache and took a pain killer and wham right back to the nausea ,brain saps and dizziness.
One day doesn’t change anything! I just made the connection. For the first week I was so dizzy and nauseas and took dramamine which helped. Definitely know the feeling of going off Pristiq, its horrid.
First week was ok but bad dreams. Wait, going through another sweating spell as I type this. Try this method, try anythiong else but try to get off this drug.
