Hey all - new here. Been on Cipralex for a week, doc put me straight to 20mg as I had been on Pristiq 50 for a month before that. Pristiq started out very promissing but eventually got worse. Side effects of , the runs and headache only lasted a few days, but the "flat mood / no mood" that people talk about
is where I'm at now.
Over the last 8 months I've been on Effexor (worked ok but too many side effects, the worst being racing heart beat), Wellbutrin (worked well with Effexor but not alone) and then the Pristiq.
I'm encouraged by the fact that those who have had success all say it takes a few weeks, I'll keep hanging on ! The "darkest" days seem to be behind me, now its the mornings that aren't good; I could sleep all day...
WizeGuy - Welbutrin has one of the lowest occurance of sexual side effects, btw. But getting all OCD over it will not make things look "up"
. But you know that, of course...
The little blue pill works too, esp if you have other medical issues that can contribute to decreased "performance"
