rolleyes I've had so many problems with my GI and my regular doctor, I took it upon myself to go to MAYO Clinic. I'm so tired of hurting and finding no help or relief from the pain, and stomach. But I'm really glad I went to Mayo. I have found out a lot about my crohn's. The doctors around where I live here have not told me everything, But I have found out so much. Its not all great news, but at least I know. eyes

Everyone keeps talking about the different drugs they keep taking, I don't know if I'm the only one who is taking Pristiq, but it seems to have taken the edge away and I can deal so much better day by day. Its really new and not a lot of people here are on it. Its doing the trick for me at this time. rolleyes

Kudos to you for going to Mayo Clinic.  Pristiq is the new Celexa and are very close in chemical make up.  Prestiq is not as expensive as Celexa which is a good thing.
I am hearing good things about this med so I am happy to hear it is working for you.
Thank you for sharing.
