freeaway: adrenaline rush and withdrawal?


freeaway

Recommended Posts

I do NOT wish to take anything else.

I should stay with Pristiq 50mg for next month and I will order 45mg and lower 10% so on. 

Is that a better idea?

 

Thank you for your help.

So I spoken to the doctor and he said pristiq is very hard to come off since it's short life in our system and he recommended using Paxil as a bridge to help come off the pristiq.

After pristiq is out then come off Paxil.

 

Paxil also has a short half-life.  As listed in the thread Tips for Tapering off Paxil -  "The half-life of regular paroxetine is estimated at about 20 hours, while paroxetine CR’s half-life is 15 to 20 hours — there’s not much difference." While that's longer than Pristiq's half-life, you might still experience interdose withdrawal on it. 

 

Are you sure your doctor recommended Paxil and not Prozac?

Yes, he did. 

And according to what I'm reading Paxil is terrible to come off as well. The doctor I spoke to has 40 years of experience. 

 

I saw the zoom conference and I think it is very true our medical doctors are not trained properly. 

 

I'm truly hoping 10% reduction method will be much smoother or easier to handle than how I went down too fast by 50%. 

 

I have failed but getting back up again going to do this thr right way as I learned from this website and staff.

 

Current: 50mg - month later to 45mg. 

How does that sound? Or better idea?

Thank you both @Shep @Altostrata for your precious time again. 

 

I started feel little better with than before panicky feeling and severe nervousness has been decreased.

 

So I spoken to the doctor and he said pristiq is very hard to come off since it's short life in our system and he recommended using Paxil as a bridge to help come off the pristiq.

After pristiq is out then come off Paxil.

I'm scared to try any other meds and not sure what will happen.

 

Any suggestions? Or recommendations?

 

 

Absolutely not Paxil! The bridge off Pristiq is its sibling venlafaxine (Effexor). See Tips for tapering off desvenlafaxine (Pristiq)
