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... read more
I am taking it for the first time and am on day 5. I feel light headed, gassy, and the dreams are very intense(not nightmares)
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... read more
I was on Serzone for years until they quit making it. My doctor put me on Cymbalta and I absolutely love how it made me feel. I started noticing that I was having muscle cramps a lot.

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... read more
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.
Does anyone else have this problem? Do you have to take it at night? I feel really terrible and extremely lethargic. Please help. Only taking 50mg.
I have stopped taking Pristiq 50mg. per day and have been put on Effexor at 225 mg per day - what dosage of Effexor is required to equal 50mg. of Pristiq?
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... read more
As far as I can remember, I had been a... non-excitable person. I don't get excited much. And I'm constantly bored. And restless. Based on my background, this can be due to decreased level of dopamine where reward based circuit is dysfunctional. Or do you guys think this is simply just... read more
