I'm thinking of going back to Effexor XR or RX. The transition was pretty smooth over to pristiq and I had no side effects for the first month or so.
Now I'm so I'm going to bed right after I put my kids to bed 8pm.
I am having major memory loss
Normally I have a iron gut but this stuff has made me throw up twice. Last time I was that sick was over 20 years ago.
I have a shorter fuse than before effexor and yelled at my son last night
for no good reason.
I'm so friggin tired I don't even feel like going into depth here on this message board to see if others are having the same issues. I'm tired of all these drugs, tired of the doctors.
One good thing from pristiq is I gained 10 lbs. another 10 would be nice. I'm 6'2" 175 so a little weight would be nice. I'm getting a little sick I think, sore throat and stuff so maybe that isn't helping. You know us men are babies when we get sick.
Tired, mad, sick, weight gain, memory loss. My sex drive was demolished on Effexor for a good 2 months but on Pristiq I'm good to go.
I'm also on Wellbutrin & Depakote....you'd think I was happier than a clown and high as a kite with all the drugs I'm gobbling up.
