Has anyone tried the new drug Pristiq for anxiety and depression?  I am only on my 4th day and am having some major side effects.  I don't know if I should stop now or give it a little more time to get my body used to it.  I am having severe anxiety that something is going to happen to me.  I know it is stress related and having 2 children that I want to be here for.  Having side effects that make me feel bad aren't helping with the anxiety at all.  I am feeling very anxiousl, ansy, heart racing almost jumping out of my chest, just a general feeling of foggyness.  I tried taking it at night instead and I wake up from a dead sleep with my heart pounding.  I am fearful that I am causing damage to myself by taking this new drug but want to get better.  I am on 50mg once a day.  Any advice or input from any of you?

I would try to wait out the side effects, but if it is too bothersome, call your doctor and maybe you could try something else.

I wish for you the best, keep posting and let us know how you are doing.
