I forgot to take my 200mg dose of pristiq yesterday morning and by last night, while still unaware of this, began to experience a strange head sensation, as if I was being thrown forward, a lack of balance, a heavy head and felt really low and became very teary. I have taken the correct dose this morning and am wondering when I will feel normal again? Thank you

My mother has been taking geodon and Effexor for several years for fibromyalgia and pain. Dr. Changed prescription to ability and pristiq with no weaning off error/geodon just stopping them cold turkey and starting new drugs the following morning? Is this normal practice or should we be looking out for withdrawal symptoms or interactions of any kind?

I have been ok 50 mg Pristiq for two weeks and 2 days. The side effects were building to the point where I would rather be off Pristiq than on it. I stopped cold turkey yesterday morning. I ad my plats dose Monday, two days ago. This day three and I am very ill with nausea, vomiting, dizziness, vertigo, I can hardly walk.n Inam trying to keep up with my fluids. My GI tract is miserable with diahhrea and cramping. Inkeep getting headaches and my head feels like cement. My Pdoc is on vacation until next Monday. My GP said to taper gradually and so did the on call PDoc. Problem is there is no smaller dose than 50 mg to taper too. FDA said not to alternate days on and off. How can Inhelp myself and how long should Inexpect these discontinuation symptoms to last?
