Jul 30, 2015 · Want to taper off Pristiq, makes my heart race in Depression & Anxiety

My psychiatrist started me on this in 2012 and increased dose to 200mg. GP refuses to change but increased up to 300mg!!! Blindly trusted docs and tapered down to 250mg early this year. Took only 200mg yesterday and today and symptoms of withdrawal kicking in.
I’m at risk of losing my job because I can’t focus or perform easy tasks. My vision is blurry. Zero libido. No motivation. Only just realised a lot of what I thought was my mental state may be side effects. Very upset at psychiatrist and GP.
