I am on 60mg of Paxil. My doctor has told me to go down to 30mg of Paxil & start taking 50mg. of Pristiq. I am being weaned off of the Paxil. Has anyone else here done this & if so did you have any major problems?
I weaned off Cymbalta and started Pristiq a couple months ago. You are taking the correct approach, weaning off the one whole starting the other. You may still get some nausea and headache from the Pristiq. It went away for me in the first two weeks and never was really that bad. I take the Pristiq in the morning with food to prevent the nausea.
I have had good results with the Pristiq. Are you one who suffers from anxiety as well as depression? How long were you on Paxil and why did you decide to switch, just curious?
I switched from the Cymbalta because it made me sleep too much. I wish you the very best of luck and keep us posted how you do,
