I had been taking Pristiq (100mg) for about two years but in June, I told the doctor that I wanted to get off of the med. She lowered my dosage to 50mg for three months. Yesterday, I went to the doctor and told her that I had no major reaction to the lesser dosage over the last three months. So, she put me on the following schedule for the next 14 weeks:

Every 2 days for 4 weeks, then
Every 3 days for 3 weeks, then
Every 4 days for 3 weeks, then
Every 5 days for 2 weeks, then
Every 7 days for 2 weeks

This seems to be a conservative approach but if it minimizes the side affects, I can live with the time frame. @lbgr1960

Good luck. Let me know how it goes. I'm feeling much better - hardly had any vertigo at all today.
