Reasons to go off are severe dry mouth that has affected my taste and constipation. Been on this drug almost a year. On it for nerve pain and it has been great for pain. Tried to switch to Effexor before the holidays, (37.5)but I had a bad panic attack. I also think Pristiq has not been good for my anxiety. I have mild depression in the winter and fibromyalgia.

I would love to hear from any of you who have tried to switch meds or go off meds? I worry I will feel WORSE, pain wise and energy wise. I really like my dr., but not sure what to do. Thx in advance
