Has anyone been on Pristiq?

I had my psychiatrist appointment today and he thinks my depression is progressively getting worse, rather than better. In the past he would just increase my zoloft, but this time he suspects that the zoloft is ineffective. So he has switched me to Pristiq. I have NEVER even heard of this medication before. So I am looking for any opinions. I am also on OC 40m 3x per day, norco as needed, and xanax.

Thanks in advance!



  • Alina...my psych doc had me try that too, I didnt like it. Made me perspire to put it mildly, nauseated me...cant remember all the problems it gave me, but I didnt even finish the samples.
    I'm still on zoloft...and even tho I'm not boucing off the walls happy...I'm not in a space where I'm constantly thinking about wanting to leave the planet.
