Pristiq withdrawl(withdrawal) killing me still

Man alive, this withdrawl (withdrawal) from my high dosage of pristiq is still kicking my ***!
It's been two full weeks now and my head still feels like it's on a swivel.

I have gotten this withdrawl (withdrawal) syndrome from every antidepressant I have ever tapered off of, but this Pristiq is even worse than Effexor. Just beware before you commit to Pristiq because if you ever have to swap it for another antidepressant then the withdrawl (withdrawal) is murder.

Talk about severe brain zaps and dizziness. This Pristiq is serious **** to get off.

I have taken Pristiq for 2 yrs now-100mg down from 200mg. It has helped with the constant thinking and worrying. It has calmed me down and helped with patience. Recently I am fatigued. I come home from work and am exhausted! Has anyone had the fatigue side effect with Pristiq?
