Hello riveramaya. I suggest the drug Haldol, generic Haloperidol. Its an antipsychotic and is very successfull in treating anger issues. It can be taken along with Pristiq with minimal risk, meaning side effects. You might ask your doctor her/his thoughts. Regards, pledge.

I too have experienced some withdrawal and impulsive anger that has not abated. Was on Effexor for years, but doctor recently switched me. I have been taking Pristiq for about three months now. I'm going to give it a little time, but felt better on Effexor, however, tired all the time. At least I am not as tired now, but would like to feel a little better. I think Haldol is too strong for most people - it's an antipsychotic, not an antidepressant. However, each to their own.
