no, this doesn't make sense.
your doctor should give you a taper schedule to slowly cut down on your pristiq dose
it should not be stopped suddenly.
you can have bad withdraw symptoms if you stop it suddently.
ask your doctor for a taper schedule for pristiq so you can slowly cut down on it over time
and once you are tapered off of pristiq, then you can start up on the paxil
