Good Morning and Welcome to HealingWell,
When taking Pristiq, it’s important to give it time to work. Everybody responds differently to treatment. In general, it can take several weeks to feel the full benefit of a prescription antidepressant, although some people will start to feel better sooner. Remember, it's important to take Pristiq as prescribed by your health care professional. Don't stop taking Pristiq without first talking to your health care professional, even if you don't feel results right away.
Good luck on this med and may it be the one that works for you. :)
Thanks. The doctor did say at least a month till I notice something. But I was hoping it may be sooner. I think I will start a log to check how i feel at the same time everyday? The dr mentioned to do it, but it was for something else. I think it would work for this.
Thanks so much. I will keep coming on. It is so nice to read others writings, and know Im not the only one........ All though sometimes it feels like I am?...... How I feel is so confusing at times. Like one minute ok at work, and then from no where, crying in bathroom? I keep telling myself this will pass......Thanks
