Haha, I have a Pristiq logo pen myself, back from when I used to work in a pharmacy! The pain was the worst i have ever experienced and I thought i was dying. Another 2 weeks on half and then tried a quarter again.

The tremors are very bad! For most patients, the recommended dose is 100 mg taken, as needed approximately 1 hour before love-making activity. I can’t see how taking more, of a drug that makes me feel tired is going to miraculously give me energy. It has the same concentration of Sildenafil Citrate as Viagra and its efficacy as a medication for impotence is comparable to that of Viagra.
I’ve been on it for five years and for the first couple years if I missed a couple doses it was no big deal but now if I don’t take my pill before bed I’m in full withdrawal by the following afternoon and simply taking a pill doesn’t help.

I thought things would feel better by now, but they are not. You keep doing this in two week or more increments until you are off. Thank you for your post, you inspire me!
Doctors really have no idea how horrible this is, even the smallest, slowest taper dose. I cannot function because of this stupid medicine.
I thought it was just me because of my history that I had screwed up my brain so I’m grateful to know I’m not alone. Hi Johnny, hope all well with you and yours.
I have also this time around, noticed an elevation in my blood pressure and bad cholesterol which for someone with obesity is not a good thing. I feel I should be pounding down water to try to flush it out but when the nausea sipping a little ginger ale helps some.
Nor did I feel the side effects that were listed by others when beginning to take the med either. I’m not a depressed person, just hyper and doctor gave it to me for mood swings.
I am deeply ashamed and cannot begin to make amends for the last few years, it is unethical to contact past clients and appologise for my own poor judgement. Any comments or anyone taking something like Dramamine ? Not to mention trippy dreams and irrational thoughts. But it worked for me and my suggestion is consult your doctor before using anything.

6 of 7 pills if I feel like I need to. You should try and get off Pristiq as soon as possible if your depression is something you can handle. 00 dollars for each 30 day supply.
Couldn’t spell my own name on the e-mail to customer, driving car is a task, 55 MPH on a highway, feel like everything is twirling around, muscle pains. I ran out 3 days ago, and have had no time to pick up my prescription. This is such a pharmaceutical scam and bullshit the docs blindly follow.
I refuse to go back on those or any pills unless the doctors make them more affordable and available with as much if not less side effects than something like Cannabis. My husband hates me at the ,moment and I just don’t think I can go on. Thank goodness I found this site so I know I am not alone. I sleep like a champ.
Can someone please tell me this wont last forever? Then, I decided to try biting the pill into really tiny bits.
100s for 4 months have cut back to 50s this last week brain zaps and nausea. I am on day 6 now and everyday I get a new symptom — all that has been described on this blog . I am so surprised your nurse was so blaze about it!
I was prescribed pristiq only 3 and a half weeks ago using only 50 mg a day. One GP actually said I would probably have to be on this type of medication for the rest of my life !
Always take this pill with water as it helps the active constituent Sildenafil Citrate to dissolve quickly and show the effect faster. I was given Pristiq in April for depression. Or even, lack of their own medicine.
If I can get past the low BP I think I will be ok. I am on Lexipro now and very happy with the result. Been on everything including MAOI and 23 shock therapies.
I’m glad someone else is raising awareness. I can tell you that the withdrawals from this medication are very fierce.
Just know that it will end. Next thing I know, four hours have passed and still no sign of the duty doctor nor the Pristiq.
It is so much better ! Edegra helps men with impotence have satisfactory love-making activity again by allowing more blood to flow into the male reproductive organ. I feel like me again. But I’m going to be consistent.
It is not possible to determine whether these events were directly related to Caverta. I went through a bad time about a year ago and had to get on something. I feel like a lifeless hollow body on this med. I was afraid that they would refuse treatment if I decided not to take the pills they offered.
I have been on other anti- depressants before and it took 3 or 4 missed days to even come close to this! I stopped the Pristiq but I thought he was nuts. But I also know I would not be well enough to even consider attempting this if it were not for being led back to GRACE in September. New Treatments For Depression » Blog Archive Can I Take .
I am having mood swings between depression and rage. Any words of hope would help so much, I can tolerate this if I know it will eventually stop! I’ve been on Pristiq for 3 years and decided I wanted to experience life on my own terms.
100 not to mention the pain in my left side, felt like my kidney shutting down. 2 months at least, with the jaw clicking still here, but not as bad. Noticed need to take vitamins to build energy otherwise very tired. I thought, I wonder if I take a tramadol will I get a little better?
He was put on anti depressants 7 years ago from one panic attack. How could he look me in the eye and tell me that?
My doctor said take 6 of 7 pills for at least two weeks. It would just help to know this constant ringing in my ears will stop. Can anyone tell me when I can expect to get my libido back?
GRACE is the ONLY reason I am even able to attempt going through discontinuation syndrome. Was told by the nurse I don’t have anything written down for brekkie. He was like a drug addict. I’ll keep you posted on my progress.
24 for a small container. I was aggitated, sick to my stomach and light headed. I have periods of depression which my psychologist thinks are a byproduct of the anxiety. I’m on day 2 of withdrawing from pristiq and I am finding it hard to type this.
18 days now and counting! I had been taking Pristiq since last August. Don’t like the dreams or feelings at the moment.
Things were looking good for us and we hadn’t gotten on so well in years. In addition to taking ADs, I also undertook several other methods of rehabilitating, such as group counselling, mood-management courses, individual psychotherapy and psychiatric evaluation.
Once the nausea is over, try to eat well and take lots of vitamins, especially in the B family and Fish Oil. So I started with skipping Sunday. The effect of Pristiq on me was poor judgement, irritability and anger, even worse sleep than I was trying to treat, dehumanisation and withdrawal from others and life. Try to go to sleep at the same time every night.
I am day three and experiencing all symptoms. Yes but I don’t know where or how to do that. But make sure you talk about it!
Perhaps rehab might be a thing to check out, although I will say that doctors ect are blind to the fact off how bad pristiq really is. Less commonly reported side effects are back indigestion. Shivering and then hot flushes are unbearable too. I really didn’t know the nausea was related.
I am on Lexapro now and doing dandy. There isn’t much to lose, you should consider Chantix.
