> Obviously, my pdoc has never tapered anyone off of Pristiq yet because he dropped my dose from 100 mg. to 50 mg. (Pristiq only is available in 50 mg. and 100 mg. time-release tablets). Within 72 hours I was in terrible withdrawal. I tried splitting a tablet (my pdoc said I could do that, even though I was skeptical) and I got terribly ill within 45 minutes of taking the split pill.


It's too late now, but perhaps you could have bought some enteric coated capsules, broke a 50 mg Pristiq time release tablet into the size you wanted, and put the tablet piece into an enteric coated capsule.

Buy the enteric coated capsules here:

Just a thought.
