Problems switching from Effexor to Pristiq?

Recommended Posts

I've been on Effexor for several years, starting at 75mg up to 225mg every day. My doc switched me to Pristiq but I'm wheening off of Effexor while taking Effexor 100mg.

I'm on my 2nd week of wheening 150mg of Effexor and taking 100mg of Pristiq. But idk if I'm having crazy side effects or what. I'm 2 weeks late on my cycle, my breasts hurt, horrible night sweats for the past week, abdominal cramping (like my cycle is getting ready to start), back pain in kidney area, sleeping lots sometimes off and on all day, weird feeling on the back of my tongue.

And there's no way I could be pregnant (tubes tied 7 yrs ago) and I even took a pregnancy test to be 100% sure. Just cause I've been freaking myself out...it's negative.

Idk what's going on with me....anyone else have similar issues??
