Prozac was causing me to gain weight (even when I merely looked at food commercials)...& was causing me to stay up half the night & sleep half the day.
so my psyche swapped out my meds cold...on the day of the office visit she required me to stop the Prozac (40 mg.'s); & the very next day start Pristiq (50 mg.'s).
that was 17 days ago...& i'd love to be able to tell u how i'm feelin', but frankly...I don't know.
seems like the Pristiq is actually aiding the upside-down day/night thing...as it's a bit more extreme now...& I'm not sure it's (Pristiq) working for my depression, because I get so doggone depressed it becomes physical anxiety...with some anger.
don't know if this is a meds transision thing...& if I just need to keep my pants on & wait...or if it's not gonna work at all...or just what I should be expecting & when.
anybody out there like myself? (former/clean addict presribed Prozac & switched to Pristiq)...experiencing similar things???
