Switching from Pristiq to Effexor XR

Recommended Posts

I’ve been on Pristiq a few years now but my depression and anxiety have increased lately. My new doc and I have talked it over and decided to try Effexor XR since they are similar. Did anybody try this and was there a difference?

I’m curious because of my understanding of how the body processes Effexor. If it is correct, Effexor turns into Pristiq once it’s processed in the liver.

Please tell me your understanding of the drug if this is wrong! Thanks.
