I was wondering if everyone who has had great results on pristiq was taking anything else ( other AD's) or pristiq alone? I just started Prozac w well xr and I am so tired 24/7. I've been on it for 2wks now but think I'll ask my dr to try me on pristiq. It sounds great!
I take pristiq 50 mg once daily, but still have severe anxiety and panic attacks so take klonopin as well. I take 0.5 mg when needed, up to 4 x a day. The pristiq alone doesn't seem to treat my anxiety- it may for some people, but probably depends on the severity of it. Hope you find what works! :) ~Anjeegyrl
Hi there, I am on Pristiq 50 mg for a full 2 weeks now. My side-effects were worst around days 6-10, and have been diminishing since then. My dr. also prescribed Ambien for insomnia, which can happen on this drug, as well as ativan, also for the insomnia (I don't take at the same time... it's just a way to mix them up a little and have neither stop working). I used to have anxiety issues, so I was a little afraid they'd reoccur, as so many people complain of that on this med, but luckily, I haven't. I had some periods where I felt... hyper? I guess? but not like a panic attack. Good luck with the Pristiq; I'm starting to feel quite good on it at the 2 week point.
