Hello everyone. I tapered off of low dose Ativan last year thanks to BB. It probably saved my life. It definitely saved my marriage. I'm looking to taper off of Pristiq next. I need to find the right group. Can anyone help? Thanks!

DepressionForums.org might be an option.  I've seen discussions there on desvenlafaxine withdrawal.  I don't know the site well enough to specifically recommend it, but it might be worth a look.  Perhaps somebody else can weigh in.
