But wait until you want to get off the Xanax some time later, not easy.

Jan 31, 2018 · Tips on minimising withdrawal symptoms from Effexor (aka Venlafaxine) in Depression & Anxiety

I’m about to start the process from Pristiq, same family. After much research and talking to both of my doctors I can pass this information: DO NOT GO COLD TURKEY. Slowly is the way to go, e.g. 1/4 mg. drop every 4 to 6 weeks. There are one or two other ways it can be done. If at all possible don’t do this alone, have medical supervision, tell your friends and family. If necessary find a support group as the antidepressants don’t come with a ‘warning, hard to withdraw from’ statements. I’m a week into cutting down by a quarter, so far so good. Pristiq comes in a square so I split them in half on the diagonal then I can split that half into a quarter when needed.
Other than this eat healthy, exercise, be social when possible and stay busy.
Good luck to both of us.
