Dec 18, 2018 · Want to taper off Pristiq, makes my heart race in Depression & Anxiety

I have now been free of Pristique for about 7 weeks and have new benefits all the time. I went for a hearing test and my hearing had actually improved when I was told this it suddenly occurred to me I haven't had vertigo for ages. I sweat it affects you where you have weaknesses. I have tinitus and once had bad labryinthitis and as a kid didn t like spinning and getting dizzy. I think pristique makes your weak spots more vulnerable. Does that sound mad?

Dec 15, 2018 · Want to taper off Pristiq, makes my heart race in Depression & Anxiety

I have just weaned my self from Pristique it is several weeks now. I was on 50 Micrograms a day and I started week 1. M50:T25:W50:Th25:F50:S25:Sun50.
I did this by cutting the tablet on my doctors advice as there is no smaller dose. The following week I increased the 1/2 tablets to 4 days the 3rd week all 1/2 tablets then 5th week 3 days then 6th week 4 days no tablet 7th week no tablets. My doctor gave me panadol fort for the migraines and stemetil for the nausea. I only took as needed I had 2 scripts for stemetil but only used a few panadol forte. Mainly at night so I could sleep. When I was completely off I developed flu like symptoms with sever neck shoulder and head pain she gave me 1 script for valium and that fixed it one tablet one night . I still get some zapping at night but all the other symptoms are gone except the ones like poor memory, I had increased bladder weakness and memory but its all settling now and I feel so much better. I also found that Migrastick peppermint and peppermint tea were helpful as I didn't want to be taking the stemitil all the time. I still get brain zapping mildly at night and I heard that drugs like Pristique have a "protective" attribute so one you stop taking them thinks that have not been a problem for a while become a problem again until totally free of the pristique so I experienced bladder weakness and very poor short term memory but that is already improving. I am so glad I am off the drug at last. I feel much more motivated since stopping this drug. I was prescribed for situational depression so there was no need to stay on it forever. But it was hard to come off It took me several gos. Cheers

Not really I just had a few more "accidents" than usual but that has pretty much gone. My memory is bad tho I hope it improves. I walked out the door and drove places without my handbag 3 times! I always take it with me! Hopless.

Dec 8, 2018 · Weaning off Effexor- is there any way to make this more bearable? in Depression & Anxiety

I'm now to ths not sure what a thread is tho I can guess and dont know how to find it I wanted to write my experience with a doctors help so others can see it can be done. I still have some residual zapping and those memory things that these drugs protect so bladder weakness again and memory really bad but hoping they will come good with time I was on Pristique for situational depression for & years tried so many time to come off. It's a horrid drug.I mean it helped initially but you should be able to come off drugs you no longer need. I was upset that if I forgot a pill I would be sick with Migrane and Nausea for a day till the next one kicked in!

I found that stemetil for the nausea was good and the peppermint Migrastick really helped with headaches but when it got too bad I used panadol forte. My doctor is great and trusts my judgement she gave me valium for the pain and stiffness I got in neck and shoulders abd I took one at night once and it fixed it. Asa I was bef
ginning to feel better Peppermint worked instead of stemetil
