Has anyone else made this switch? How is it going so far? I know Pristiq is a newer medication, but it's just not helping me. I feel depressed, unmotivated, and anxious, not to mention terrible night sweats. Any advice or personal experiences you could share with me are greatly appreciated. Thanks!
I made the switch a while back. Pristiq took about a month or so to really get into my system. That's normal but 3 monthly later I was feeling the same way. I stayed on it for another 2 months. Lack of motivation crying anxious all the time. I would wake up sweating from anxiety then start crying. I then switched back to Paxil. I'm on something different now. I do like Paxil.
Are you still within the first 2-4 weeks? It's not unusual to feel worse when starting a new med, also, if there wasn't enough time in between the switch there could be some overlap causing these symptoms as well, all depends on the timing.
