Hi there guys and gals,
Someone in the depression forum has started talking about DESVENLAFAXINE (PRISTIQ) as a treatment for MDD and is saying that it is the new Effexor. I have a family member who takes Effexor at the moment but struggles with it constantly as taking the effexor seems to make her vomit. (Not as a side effect... its the taste I think). So I was looking at the info for desvenlafaxine and it says to tell your doctor if you have Bi-Polar Disorder (As my sister does). I am curious to know if anyone has taken desvenlafaxine with Bi-Polar and whether it worked for you?

It must be very new, Darren. Rxlist doesn't even have an entry for it yet -- it just refers you to effexor. The Wyeth site said it just received FDA approval in Feb 2008.
