    I discontinued both Prempro and Pristiq one month ago. I'm a 49 year old female who was in menapause at age 40. I have been on prempro for 9 years and different anti-depressants for 20 years. (Zoloft, Effexor, Pristiq, ....) etc. Up until now, I haven't had very many side-effects. After a month of not taking either medicine, I find some irrational thinking, hot flashes, mild depression, crying easily, and lack of sexual interest. Will these symtoms go away after I have been off these medications for a period of time?
