... pristiq and onto Prozac? I am also on abilify and buspar. I am worried about the side effects
Weaning off Pristiq needs to be a slow process so to avoid withdrawal effects. I took 6 weeks to wean and still suffered several months of nausea and diarrhea once I stopped. Also, be aware that Pristiq is a different kind of antidepressant than Prozac. Pristiq affects both serotonin and norepinephrine while Prozac only affects serotonin. Without the effects on norepinephrine you may experience other withdrawal symptoms. I recommend you wean slowly and be patient for the Prozac to work once you are off the Pristiq and onto the Prozac.
