Starting Pristiq - Again
Posted 16 April 2012 - 11:10 PM
So today, 50 mg of Pristiq (AM); also take 1 mg of Klonopin (PM - but not yet today). What did I notice? Excessive yawning on way back from pharmacy. When got home went into blissful sleep for about 3 hours. When I got up, extreme focus – seeming away from depression. Not so much in an anti-depressant sense, but kind of like a horse with blinders on – depression was pushed to side, out of view. No real sense of joy, just focus. So, looked at this forum, and ended up signing up. Now, at 12 AM, since 3PM been posting away. This is 20th post. Not anything like a hypomania, just a focus. Stopped for dinner, very little appetite, where as before, up to just last night there was not stopping my food cravings / ability to satiate appetite.
Having been on many meds, would say this feels like a mini Vyvanse without the hyped-upness. Looking for a sense of feeling; like where I can say: “I feel great!” – “I feel normal” - and it lasts. Will see how sleep tonight is.

I started Pristiq about a month ago. I didn't have the focus issue, but I did experience the yawning. It must have looked like I needed to sleep for a month. I also fell asleep every time I lay down and that was a fair bit because of the nausea.I also lacked appetite. After day 4, the yawning ceased and my appetitie came back.
Hope it settles down for you and that it gives you some relief
