Yesterday, I switched from Effexor XR 150mg to Pristiq. Today, I'm so down, I scare myself, and wasn't much better yesterday. Has anyone else had this experience?
I've been on Pristiq in the past, with good results, but stopped it d/t sweats. This time, I'm not even having the sweating! Maybe I'm just not giving it enough time to kick in? I know Effexor has a very short half life, but Pristiq is supposed to be a "second generation Effexor" or sorts, so I would expect the transition to be more seamless. Any thoughts?
