... that went into depression and anxiety,a few years ago, and last year my mom passed away and now my depression is worse I take clonazapam with the Pristiq. I take these at night but during the day I am so depressed, anxious, When I first went on Pristq I took it during the day but I was so sleepy and switched it to night and get insomnia, this was five years ago, could that of been because when you first start a med you get this side effect and I didnt know and switched it to night, and matbe I should of waited longer and this sid effect would of gone away the sleepiness, or is this drug to strong for me
