I was put on 50mg of Pristiq in August 2014 for anxiety due to lack of sleep and Post Natal anxiety it has worked brilliantly for me I take it in the late arvo and find I sleep better too. I've had no side effects just more energy but I cope better with everything. If I miss one dose I get terrible zaps that's the one thing that's awful.
My issue now is we are wanting another baby and I have to taper off it as it's very unsafe during pregnancy.
My Dr has got me doing
Miss every 3rd day for 2 weeks
Miss every 2nd day for 2 weeks
None for the next 2 weeks
I'm into the first week and the zaps, fatigue and Nausea on th day I miss are horrible is there a way to make the withdrawals easier!!!
