Has anyone ever tried/currently taking Pristiq? My psychiatrist is weaning me off of Paxil, and I just started taking Pristiq because she said it was better for managing social anxiety.
I started 50mg of Pristiq yesterday. It is a serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (instead of a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor like Paxil). My psych said it is like the cousin of Effexor...
I think coming off the Paxil is making me really irritable. I think I have always been kinda moody and irritable, lol... but my mom and dad are saying I'm way worse now. So I'm hoping it gets better... I do notice my son is getting on my nerves a lot more than before. He's always been defiant and active and he always stressed me out unfortunately, but I find myself having less patience with him =( I wish I could be more patient and not yell so much. I think I yell at him too much =( And I feel sooooo bad for that.
I was just wondering if anyone has taken Pristiq and how u liked it/ if it worked?
