My anxiety is worse on this medication - I shake all day and feel really strange. I can't focus on anything. I take 50 mg in the morning. Any suggestions? Thanks.
Anytime your medication makes you feel worse than before you started taking it, I'd suggest talking to the prescriber about that medication. I would DEFINITELY talk with him/her since the Pristiq is making you feel shakey and more anxious. Remember, medication is sometimes a "crap shoot"; what works well for some may not work for others OR, even worse, may have adverse effects. Hope this helps.

I've just started Pristiq two days ago for anxiety and depression. My doctor didn't tell me whether?
