  1. I hope you had a fantastic day :)

  2. I started Pristiq about the same time as you did, Elaina, and I am very happy with the result. I had been on Lexapro 15mg for years and it stopped working for me about a year ago. I take meds primarily for anxiety and panic disorder. I tried a number of meds and they didn't work. I even tried Effexor but it made me feel doped up. I was skeptical about trying Pristiq but I needed to do something. I am glad that I did. I didn't realize how sedated I was on the Lexapro. I am now very motivated and alert. I am interested in things that I haven't been interested in for years. My anxiety and panic lessened right away but I didn't feel the full effect until about 3.5 weeks on Pristiq. I had mild side effects, mostly dry mouth but that is gone now too. I take it at night right before bed as it knocks me out, same as all the anti-depressant meds I have taken. Thanks for the info about withdrawal, Kimberly and I am sorry for what you are going through. I'm not going to worry about it because I have heard terrible things about withdrawal for most of the meds I have taken including the Effexor and I am lucky to not have experienced them. This is working for me and I feel better than I have in years. Lori
