  • Higher than a kite, and dumber than one of those saying i can no longer remember!
    I told my shrink I didn't want to try anymore antidepressants... that they make me crazy-stupid(pristiq), crazy-nympho(wellbutrin), or crazy-sloth(lexapro). I have complex ptsd, did, and gad. I really don't want to take anything... I just want to work out, eat right, and try to put myself back on track. It seems like every time I try these pills I get pushed off course. Anyways here's my experience with pristiq. Day1) dilation ofpupils was noticed with in a few hours, it started to feel like I was on sshrooms....I'd look in the mirror and feel so much love...just stand there staring. I slept better than I did in months. Day 2) Sadly though, when I woke up I couldn't climax, it was like I was numb. My pupils were still dilated and I still felt an out pouring of love and admiration while looking at myself. I tried hard not to fixate and get ready for work. I noticed that my tummy wasn't bloated anymore, I hadn't felt this much releaf in months. As I took my daily 50mg I reassured myself that it was ok not to climax in favor of all the good things I'm feeling now. Pristiq didn't interfere with my routine other than climaxing. Day 3) I awoke well rested with a happy tummy and it didn't bother me a bit not to climax, I jumped out of bed and started my day with vigor. The moment I took my dose and left the house is the last thing I remember! From what I wrote in my calendar, the notes I took, and my phone history I can piece together the things I did for 7 more days!!! I went to work, but my coworker was on holidays so it was just me alone in the office, I have no family or friends in this country (I moved to get away from a bad situation, hence cptsd) anyways I had no interaction. The only thing that brought me out was probably that I stopped taking the medication on day7 (According to the amount of medication left)....it's taken 14 more days to get out of the pristiq fog. During that time I've experienced nightly vivid dreams/ nightmares, extreme sweating and high body temperature, my stomach discomfort fluctuates but I can control it through diet, I'm able to climax again though it takes time, my pupils returned to normal a few days after I returned to myself...I seem to have memory impairment.
  • Pristiq, epilim, sifrol, immovane, valium, mobic
    I started out with mild burnout depression in 2009 and was put on a low dose of Lexapro, which picked me up fantastically. I had been given low (2mg) Valium before for muscle relaxant purposes due to my scoliosis complications. Both these worked well. Then in 2010 I was drugged and raped and almost suffocated by my flatmate. I plummeted after 3 days of numb shock, into the deep dark abyss of major depression, and became fearful about everything. I couldn't enter a shop if there was a queue of men in there for example. Finding myself with complete lack of motivation, neglecting housework, making mistakes constantly at work, I returned to the doctor. He doubled my Lexapro dose. I went back as instructed and was not feeling any better and could not cope with how I felt, so he sent to a psychiatrist. The psychiatrist added Epilim ie pramipexole hyrochloride (low dose) for mood balance, upped the Valium ie daizepam, to 5mg, and prescribed Immovane for my insomnia and terrifying nightmares. Time went on, and I built a tolerance to Lexapro, so he put me on Pristique 200 and Epilim 200. Then I had to have both those doubled (400 each) and I take them twice a day. I have had NO negative side effects at all, and they work excellently for me. As for the restless legs syndrome, that was diagnosed before I was on these medications. The Sifrol had to be increased too as I was told it had to have time to gradually build up in my system. It makes a great difference to my quality of sleep and how my legs feel the next day.
  • Buspar and chest painosborn@
    Dr.prescribed Buspar for the severe anxiety I was experiencing with my PMDD. I took 1 10mg tablet.i did not have any effect from this drug , so I took another 10mg tab. And the started having sharp chest pains. Has this happened to anyone else?
  • Stopping pristiq for my memory
    I have been on Pristiq for 3 years. My short term memory loss is a great concern to me. I am 45 and I have questioned my doctor and given my concerns to the point she referred me to a neurologist but said it was not the Pristiq. There is no other drugs I am taking or have taken to cause this problem. No head injury. It is hard to come off this medication because if the dizziness you experience. Find another way to combat depression with your doctors help.
