The calculations I made were based on you reducing from 50mg Pristiq, not the 75mg Effexor.  Remember that we think it should have been 100mg Effexor for 50mg Pristiq.

 

The problems you are having now may be delayed withdrawal symptoms from your change over to 75mg and going too quickly at the end of last year after you changed to Effexor.

 

Please re-read my previous post.

I'm not sure if you have seen these but I suggest you check them out before you see the doctor:

 

How do you talk to a doctor about tapering and withdrawal?


What should I expect from my doctor about withdrawal symptoms?
