hi mb333. welcome to the forum. i am on pristiq, 200mg, around 6months now. less sedating than effexor, itis a dirivertive of effexor, thus transition is easier. works better on depression itself, than say with a dx of depression/anxiety. we are all different, thus seek medical advice. all the best, a fan of pristiq. jamie.
dx, mdd, severe borderline personality disorder.
