It will get better. I quit pristiq 1.5 years ago after being on it for 3 years. I took a week off work and fought through the withdrawl. DiZzy to the extreme. Couldn\’t drive for a good 4 days. Then probably shouldn\’t have for a few more! After a week was fine but still had the brain zaps for a good 4-6 weeks. Good luck and keep us posted !!
