Side effects of Pristiq

I found out on NYE that I am pregnant, and needless to say have been worried about the effects of Pristiq on my pregancy. I attempted to go off cold turkey when I first found out, but the result was disastrous. I then did every other day for a week, and then every third day for another week. Each week, it was a little difficult, but got better and better. I am now on my first week of not taking any (only day 4) and am having a very hard time. The nausea (could be from pregnancy as well, of course) has been bearable, but the dizziness is terrible. I am worried about the coming week(s). I also had very severe anxiety all night last night. For anyone who has tapered off successfully, does this sound like a normal trend? It’s scary, but I feel like I can survive it, as long as I know there is light at the end of the tunnel…

OK so I am doing the same thing as you did and I am on 1/3 of 50mg. I feel a little spacey and unable to clearly articulate myself. Fuzzy head space I guess. Did this go away and how long did it take until you felt normal?

Hi Dani, I am new to this site – and just reading the posts on Pristiq. I know your post was several months ago – just wondering how you are doing? hopefully you were able to successfully come off the pristiq. Please let us know… prayers and hugs to you!!
