... No sex drive, insomnia, irritated easily, mood swings horrific. Thoughts and feelings of inadequacy, It's affecting my marriage. Help. What can I do to get off pristiq?
You may not need to discontinue the Pristiq, but may be able to adjust the milligrams per day. Not sure what dose you are on so difficult to say. I wouldn't discontinue without first talking to the prescribing doctor. You must wean off this type medication so to avoid withdrawal effects and would want to address your symptoms with some other medication if you were to stop. Again, best to discuss with the doctor.
