Finally off paxil (while on Pristiq) but not happy with the singular effects of pristiq for anxiety.
26 Apr 2010
I see you have no answer yet... i am just a person who has taken Pristiq. I felt very hyper on this drug and I feel is a good anti-depressant, but not as effective for anxiety. All of our body chemistry is different. This drug felt like adrenaline in my system and I had difficulty concentrating. When I told my dr. I felt this way, she said she had heard this before from patients.
As you probably know, this is such a process. You might give this a few more weeks, then discuss with your dr. and see what is suggested.
My personal feeling is 50mg was too strong for my body. Too bad we did not have a choice here for 25mg. Good luck
