I’m a 46 year old woman, Pristiq has literally been a life saver for me. However the tiredness and fatigue are really hard to live with. I feel like I could sleep for 20 hours a day, and anytime I do anything (work, gardening, exercise) I kind of ‘crash’. I work full time, so basically sleep all weekend.
When do you take the Pristiq? I used to take it in the morning 50mg for like 8 years. I'd move to a new medication when you can. Pristiq is a really hard drug to get off of because 25mg is the lowest dose and you can't break it up because of the matrix the pill uses to deliver the drug.
