Does anyone take Pristiq?

My doc just prescribed the new med and I wonder if anyone has experience with it?

Re: Does anyone take Pristiq?

dismama, I would love to know about it. Do you have major depressive disorder? what did your dr. say about it and why did he/she put you on it instead of one of the other meds?

Have you started taking it yet?

I'm trying to search about it now, I'm so desperate to get out of this depression.

Re: Does anyone take Pristiq?

i am bipolar but going thru a rough depressed period right now. just got out of the hospital. the doc is trying pristiq because cymbalta was making me more anxious. he said it's basically the same thing as effexor. i've been through all the prozac, zoloft, wellbutrin, etc and nothing seems to work.

I take Pristiq and it seems to work well for me with few side effects
