I tried pristiq and had horrible cognitive issues, such as memory loss and searching for words. I also turned into a green eyed monster whilst taking pristiq, I truly was incredibly unpleasant to be around. I wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy.
We all react differently to different medications, so what works for rc may be a horrible experience for you or I.
Tell your doctor, in no uncertain terms, that you are having memory problems on pristiq. Don't back down, stand your ground as you must be your own advocate!
Best wishes to you and I do hope your doctor can find a med that will not affect you in this manner,
