The paraesthenia (tingling and numbness), tinnitus and heart pounding are all reported side effects of Pristiq. If the heart beat is fast or irregular or there is any pain associated with it, please contact the doctor immediately.
Generally, these side effects will subside with continued use but if they become intolerable report them to the doctor.
I had the same thing happen to me a few days ago, but i am tapering now. I wasn't able to function the dizziness was so bad.
