Since it is relatively new as Pledge says no studies to know for sure about effects of long term use. I have been taking for a couple of years now and don't plan to stop anytime soon. Life long illness, life long treatment.

I'm on day 9 of quitting Prestiq cold turkey 50mgs. I started on it in June. I took it for anxiety. Now I just exercise longer and harder that seems to help with anxiety. I just didn't want to be dependent on a pill for the rest of my life. Withdrawal symptoms haven't been to bad. My anxiety was worse when I started taking prestiq. I have xanex on hand just in case I feel an attack coming on. Still having horrible nightmares.

No studies, but it is very similar to Effexor which has been on the market for many years. I switched to it from previously taking Effexor to get a better sex drive back.

There's no way that I can be without an anti-depressant. Have long term severe depression. But not anymore thanks to the anti-depresssant.

Depression is known to be a disease of the whole body, causing many other illnesses.
