Hello jmatheis. I could not find the half life. It would be 24 hours. The length of time on the drug is not a factor. It is from the point when a dose was last taken. Regards pledge

i don't understand the answer... 1/2 life? what does that mean? i've been on pristiq over 5 years @ 300mg daily... i'm wanting to do away with it all together because i just found out i was miss diagnosed from the beginning. my doctor said to start out (stopping it) by taking 1 less pill for 1 month then 2 until i was down to 1- 100mg a day - which is where i'm at now. i've never gone through withdrawal of any kind & i'm not sure what to do now. so how long after the last 100mg pill before the withdrawal symptoms finally stop? is there a way to lessen them or speed the process along without anymore drugs? thanks.

The half life is 11 hrs, so it would be in your body 5 times that or 55 hrs.
