I'm bipolar. I've been going through an excessively long depressive state. My doc wanted to add a new SSNRI, Fetzima. It works great for me. HOWEVER, my insurance won't cover it. I can't take Effexor or Cymbalta--I always look like I just stepped out of a show that I took wearing my clothes.
Does anyone use Pristiq? Especially those that can't use Effexor or Cymbalta, but all that use Pristiq, your experiences will help me greatly.

BTW Wellbutrin is the only other antidepressant I don't have side effects from.


Thank you :-)
