My Dr. gradually tapered my dose, but the side effects are horrible. I am having dizziness, mind zaps, chills, emotional craziness & just real tired of feeling like this. I took my last dose 5 days ago. How much longer will this last?

I have been taking Lexipro for a year now and although it has helped with my anxiety it has also caused me to gain 10 pounds. I’ve asked my doctor if there’s a medicine that doesn’t cause weight gain and she recommended Pristiq, and mentioned that it might cause weight loss. As a ...

I have been on 20mg of Lexapro for a little over a year. I saw my doctor yesterday and told her that despite the difference Lexapro had provided, I was still not very "happy" (and never had been... it basically made me dysphoric rather than crying all the time), and the fact that I have ...

A few months ago I was switched from Paxil to Wellbutrin due to extreme sadness, but worse than that, complete lack of motivation, both at home and at work. My doctor suggested Pristiq but since it has a much higher co-pay than Wellbutrin, we decided to try Wellbutrin first. For the first 8 weeks ...

My Dr. added 50mg Pristiq 50mg due to the severe depression I couldn't stop. He also added Lamictal 100mg and Abilify 5mg also which I stopped 4 days ago due to the horror stories I read about it. I really need to know if Wellbutrin and Pristiq is a good combination. Thank you for your help.

I've been on Pristiq for about three weeks. I am on 50mg. and so far have experienced dizziness. Will that go away in time? I have yet to see it affect my depression and anxiety. I am on Zydis or Zyprexa for anxiety which works pretty well. Betsy

I was on Effexor 150mg for 10 years and wanted to be drug free. The Dr. said it would be a difficult withdrawal process and suggested I get on Pristiq as it would be easier to withdraw from. What a nightmare! I switched on November 28th from Effexor 150mg to Pristiq 100mg and after 3 weeks went ...

I was prescribed Klonopin for anxiety and panic attacks, along with Pristiq 50mg. I've been taking 0.25mg of Klonopin daily for two weeks now (before going to sleep) and I'm supposed to quit it soon, once the full effect of Pristiq starts to kick in. Will I get any withdrawal symptoms ...

I have been on Pristiq 50 mg for over a year and it was working great. But recently, within the last month, I haven't felt as good. My doctor increased my dosage to 100 mg. I started taking the 100 mg but I started feeling nauseous so I decided to just take 1/2 of the 100 mg pill. However, I ...
