getting by said...
Yes, patience. The highest pristiq goes is 150. That is what I am on, but I went up to 100 in the beginning for a long time before going to 150.
I didn't notice how fast it worked as I took Effexor and pristiq at the same time for a bit. One kicked in before I stopped the other.
I have been on it for a few years with no problem. Pristiq, like Effexor, has anti anxiety properties, so the anxiety should be minimal. I wish you the best.
Yes, pristiq is as effective as Effexor was.
Karen thanks for all your info did you wait about
8 weeks before increasing to 100mg and then 150mg etc.. I know I have to wait 4-6 weeks my concern is my doc is locked in mindset that pristiq is designed that 50mg is for everyone if I am not getting relief by that I want to be prepared for what to do with him etc.. Like I said years ago efforx helped me so figured this was same version less side effects which I am noticing.
