Pristiq (desvenlafaxine)

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hello guys. I have been with anxiety so I went to a psychiatrist and he gave me pristiq or desvenlafaxine. I search the net. It is an antidepressant. I want to know based on your experience about this drug. If this drug could also be used for antianxiety? I have very bad insomnia and it destroys my life. I'm so frustrated already and I want to try whatever is available just to get a decent sleep. Please let me know your experience on this drug and how long it would take to see the results and what should I expect for the first few weeks of taking this. Thank you very much.

    Hi im day 2 taking prisiq 50 mg. Previous to this I was on paxil for 16 years.i was 5 weeks without anything and I just couldn't cope.i have panic attacks and depression. I was terrified to take a new antidepressant but thought I need help so I took it for the first time yesterday.. At first I felt a bit of nausea, didn't sleep much last night,woke up today feeling angry,but as the day went on I started to feel ok..I guess it takes time to start working
