I have been taking pristiq for about one year now. I am having problems with low sodium in my blood low blood pressure any fast heart rate when standing. Does anyone know if this would be caused by Pristiq. I have tried so many other antidepressants but have had too many side effects. I do not know what to do. Stop taking it and maybe try Elavil or what? Please reply.
I have following points , please consider.
1.Yes , It can cause Side Effects you are experiencing.
2.Reduce dosage and monitor BP.
3.Yoga , Breathing exercises and MEDITATION will help Greatly.
4.Observe and Learn to see the mood changes.In my opinion , ultimately Body is the Hero.
5.Regular Exercise and Walk is very Good Mood Elevator.
6.Try to make your Vocation as vacation
7.Spirituality and Serving others help us to be happy.
I am talking from experience. Have survived Heart attack and 40 days in ER at 58.GOD BLESS.
