Cymbalta to Pristiq
Iím currently on 30mg of cymbalta and want to switch right away to Pristiq, is that safe? Will I suffer any side effects from the cymbalta?

I was on 60mg of cymbalta then dropped down to 30mg so I can stop taking it but when I stopped the withdrawal symptoms were so incredibly bad I just wanted to die so I started taking 30mg again. I donít want to be on this drug anymore.

I also take 400mg of lamictal for epilepsy and a mood disorder so Iím not sure if it makes all the withdrawal symptoms worse

Hi....discuss it with your pharmacy and see what they suggest. What dosage of Pristique are you supposed to be starting on?

I also started taking fish oil pills and milk thistle. Not sure if that has any effect on medications. I feel ok so far
