Does anyone here have experience with tapering off Pristiq? I have been on it (+ previously Effexor) together for a decade and I started tapering - slowly, via Effexor - last week. As expected, this is not easy. Thanks.

Compared to how much adderall has helped in a short amount of time, not really.

What did you experience while on Pristiq? Elevated mood? Tiredness?

It helped with depression but the side effects are heavy-duty and Adderall cleared up my "brain fog" and overwhelmed-feelings (massive ADHD) and so far, seems to have slowed me down so I can process my thoughts and not act impulsively.

I understand the side effects - that's why I'm coming off it. So far, the withdrawal is terrible.

I hope it gets easier for both us. Soon.
