Also - what side effects if any are you experiencing.
I am. I switched from Cymbalta about 6 months ago to pristque & then gradually added the Abilify so now I take 2 50mg of Pristiq & 10 mg of abilify each morning. you may want to take at nite I don't know about you but I feel like it saved my life - I was thinking about suicide a lot and if I was not married to a great guy who would have been devastated I would have. i was to tired and miserable to live. I thought all my good times were over. I am a 55 yr old woman and I ended up crying in my pj's at my Dr's when my husband drug me out of bed and My MD finally told me he didn't really know anything about antidepressants and sent me to a psychiatrist. No therapy there but he got me on the right drugs. i also saw a counselor for a while and will go back if I think it's needed. It was good to talk about it to someone who wasn't involved. My work place is a hospital and was very supportive.i took almost 4 months off and started back working only 3 days a week at first. I was on disability from the state and with my hospital insurance I was OK for $. ASK for help and time to adjust. I had a little nausea at first but have had no other bad side effects. No twitches or tics!!! it takes a while to work good luck sharonh
One of the people I know for this taking Rx combination to treat anxiety and depression experienced weight pain issues (tremendous amount of weight gain over a short period of time) and always wake up with a dry mouth in the middle of the night. The anxiety and depression had been fixed though. struggling with losing weight currently.
