... to side effects, so I changed to Pristiq but I don't see any information online on whether Pristiq also treats anxiety and panic attacks?
I found this on Web MD
Back to Drug Overview
What conditions does this medication treat?
Pristiq Oral is used to treat the following:
Major Depressive Disorder
Pristiq Oral may also be used to treat:
Panic Disorder, Repeated Episodes of Anxiety, Extreme Apprehension or Fear of Social Interaction, "Change of Life" Signs, Neuropathic Pain."
I hope this helps
I have had anxiety and panics since I was six years old. I often thought it may have been due to Catholic school and Nuns. Now I know it is because of the serotonin uptake and chemicals in our brains. In 1986 I finally got sick of the attacks and what they were doing to my husband and my children. I couldn't go to school functions or field trips with them due to anxiety. I was prescribed Celexa (an antidepressant) and clonazepam (a benzo - valium like drug). I believe you need to be taking both drugs to help relieve your anxiety and panics. After the third day of taking the drugs I was so much better and relief was welcome and continuous. I wish you well in dealing with these problems and if you have any other questions I would be glad to discuss them with you.
