Sorry net issues. Doc said to stop and wait 5 days and tomorrow I start Pristiq 50mg. I am a little anxious as am worried I will get same side effects!! I know SSRIs are different to SRNIs so am hoping these work. ( not exactly sure what the difference is to be honest). Anyone in the same boat with positive experiences from the change over.
First let me explain that when first starting an antidepressant, whether SSRI or SNRI, there will most likely be some start up side effects, but these usually resolve in the first week or two. I had mild headache and insomnia when I first started Pristiq. Unless the side effects become too bothersome, try to tough it out until you get passed the initial phase. It can take upwards of a month for the medication to reach max effectiveness. The difference between an SSRI and an SNRI is the SNRI affects two brain chemicals while the SSRI only affects one. Anyway, it is trial and error to find the right med so hang in there until you do.
