... nothing about?
kaw06; It seems to me like part of your question is missing? But anyway Most people do very good on Pristiq. And the fact that you are already into it about 3 weeks this is real good. Because really most of the beginning is the hardest part. such as the things you are trying to get under control like depression anxiety, shakes, restlessness. at first, Prestiq really makes all of those even worse for most people but you have made it through most of that dear. And even within the next week to 10 days it should even get better and it well continues to get better right up to where you are at the 6 to 8 weeks when you should feel pretty good. And that is when it reaches the full blood level in your system. And you well know pretty much that it is the medication for you. Now, remember you always want to take it about the same time each day. And if by chance it upsets the tummy at all take it with some milk or a few crackers. And you can avoid those stomach aches if you have them. Also, it is not unusually for the doctor to maybe give you something else to go with this to help you with the symptoms. ok if there is anything I missed please write me back and I well be glad to help you in any way I can.
As far as I know, there is no generic for Pristiq yet-definitely not in the USA, although there may be in Canada. I do know a generic has been made, but it's still in testing. Canada, however, doesn't require as long a testing time be done before putting drugs on the market.
If you live in Canada, generic Pristiq is available in pharmacies (not just online ones) and your doctor put you on genetic Pristiq, if you're having problems with it or it's not working as well as the name brand Pristiq did, you need to tell him/her. That does happen to people sometimes, the generic just doesn't work as well as the name brand.
You can order generic Pristiq online, but I would be very cautious about that, since it hasn't been approved by the FDA yet, and ordering online is iffy in general.

I have been on Pristiq for about 5 years. These last few weeks have been hell. Terrible nightmares,?
