I am currently going off of effexor and onto pristiq. I took a high dose of effexor and am weaning slowly. They are related so the transaction should be smoothe. I hope. I was taking 375mg a day and down to 150 now. I need to call my psychologist and see when I can drop another pill. I was suppose to call her last week and forgot. My brain is kind of going these days, I just don't know where. lol...
I am also 50, will be 51 this month. So I guess I am over the hill now. lol... I am going through menopause too. Just starting to skip the periods. Been through the hot flashes. But not to say I wont get more. And the nightsweats, I have been through that too. Don't have them anymore. But still have the monthly visit. I skiped one month, hope to skip another.
I hope that you are having a good day today. Let me know how things are going.
