hey, I'm enjoying all your shares. I tried coming off once before and i lasted 3 months and my dr. recommended me to go back on. I've been taking the drug for about 1.5 years and while i'm on it I feel like a million bucks and am confident and certain with everything i do in life. It feels great, but i know that their has to come a time to finally get off of it so i decided to try once again since i was in a good place in my life. I went to a dr. who told me that weaning off pristiq was as simple as just stopping cold turkey because there wasn't a lower dose available. As a precaution i decided to take it every other day for a few weeks. I felt great for a few months after not being on it at all but now, here I am feeling drained once again, confused, and considering going back on. Is there anyone that could share specifically how long it took them to finally recover from the withdrawal symptoms and start feeling good naturally??
