I am reading the reviews and am hopeful... have been dealing with depression for 10+ years - have tried many antdeprsnts - some work but lose their potency. I am skeptical of this drug - almost too good to be true?? What other drugs work with it?
I'm taking pristiq. I am in the process of weaning off cymbalta and just started the pristiq two weeks ago and am having great success. I also take abilify and nuvigil along with a few other minor medicines for arthritis and GERD.
My doctor, whom I like very much, explained to me that pristiq is a "cleaned up" version of effexor, meaning it has less side effects. I'm switching because I was tired of some of the side effects of the cymbalta particularly the tiredness and sexual dysfunction. Although cymbalta worked for me as far as the depression, I think the pritiq is going to work better.
What other antidepressants have you tried? I have been on many also. I have to change every 5 or so years because they stop working.
I would like to know your experiences if you care to share,
