Welcome to the HealingWell Depression Forum!
I have been taking pristiq for close to a year now and have had no trouble with it. I guess I have been lucky with meds. I was on effexor for years and never had a problem.
It might just not be the right medication for you. But hang in there. Stick with what the doctor says, maybe you just need to start slow. For me the transition from effexor to pristiq went rather well. I went really slow though.
I hope that this med works for you. Good luck. Keep us posted as to how you are doing.
