I am switching from Lexapro to Pristiq with my Pdoc. He recommended that I drop from my regular 20 mg of lexapro to 10mg and go to 50mg of pristiq. He said after 2 weeks drop the lexapro altogether. is this safe? is it too fast? I take 2 10mg tablets. Should I maybe go to 15mg--10mg-5mg-0? How have other people made the transition with minimum problems?
Hello pattyla16. I agree in as much as the taper is too quick. Lexapro withdrawls can be nasty. I would go 15mg for two weeks, then go 10mg for two weeks etc. If you find it to uncomfortable, instead of the cuts every two weeks, go three weeks. I am not a doctor. So, take the above mentioned into context. Regards, pledge
