Pristiq

Pristiq

How long has pristiq been on the market nationally and globally?

Experience With Pristiq 100mg Side Effects?

Experience With Pristiq 100mg Side Effects?

Has anyone else experienced tremors, loss of balance, impetigo, confusion whilst taking pristiq 100mg?

I was on 50mg but my depression and anxiety spiralled so my doctor upped my dosage.
I will be seeing him soon.
Any advice on how to cope? It seems to have spiralled a lot more since the dosage being put up.
Thanks

Does Anyone Have Any Experience Using Prestique For Depression

Does Anyone Have Any Experience Using Prestique For Depression

I was prescribed antidepressants at age 30 and I’m now 51. I have tried at least 4 different kinds. The first 10 years it was Effexor, Zoloft (Which I think was best), and a couple others for the first 10 or 12 years. The last 8 or 10 it’s been Prestique. It seems though after a certain amount of time using them they all lost their effect. That’s how it is with the Prestique is now.

Pristiq

Pristiq

Just had my first pristiq 50mg generic brand, at 7.30am, its 10 hrs later, first few hours felt weirdly woozy and nauseous, less sure of anything than ever (I've read all the reviews saying it's not as good as brand) now I feel weirdly focussed, determined and almost invincible?? (like on a non legal drug) I'm feeling my fear of being alone completely disappearing, and I walked through a busy market place (like a mall) with my head held high with determination but no random anger/sadness, I jumped out of… read more

My Dr. Put Me On Trintellix, Bupropion, Trazodone For Sleep, Seroquel And I'm Afraid Of Seretonine Syndrome.

My Dr. Put Me On Trintellix, Bupropion, Trazodone For Sleep, Seroquel And I'm Afraid Of Seretonine Syndrome.

When I first started taking the Trintellix I had a scary episode, while driving to work I became very confused and didn't know where I was. That has never happened to me before. Instead of talking to my very bossy psyc nurse I quite the Trintellix by myself. I am looking for alternatives to meds, has anyone had any success with TMS? What do you think of this combination of drugs. When I first started taking… read more
