If and when it's time to come off Pristique. Would it be better to ween as in take one everyother day or should I cut the pill in half and take half once a day for awhile? I've been taking this over a year. They say it will bring you to a level where you can come out of depression and then handle things on your own. I dont want to take this for years if I am doing better, but any day I miss taking this I am severely sick to my stomach.

Either your doc will have you taper by taking the dose less and less often, or will put you on a different SNRI medication such as Effexor, a med that can be decreased. You can't split Pristique cause it's time released, and would only flood your system very quickly with too much of the drug.
