I`m not taking NSAIDs. i`ve been getting bruises so easily, sometimes spontaneous and also menorrhagia. my ferritin levels have been pretty low for my entire life (last two times i checked last year it was 7 and 12 - iron levels are normal) and i had some occasional gastrointestinal bleeding episodes and epistaxis during my life but no exact cause was detected.
I have not had any unusual brusing since on Pristiq, BUT spontaneous bruising can be a serious side effect and needs to be reported to the doctor right away. Please read through the side effects on the following link:
Bruising or bleeding is a serious side effect which needs medical attention.
