Was on Cymbalta for 1 yr, it worked for depression & then the effectiveness was reduced, the depression increased & anxiety increased so I went off of it and had horrible side effects. I have been unable to funciton. This was 2 months ago, I had to be put on Pristiq, but now I am experiencing rapid thoughts, headaches & I think it is the combination of adderall xr & Pristiq. Also beware of using seroquel for sleep. I got myself off of that in Jan & it took me months of no sleep & I am still struggling to get to sleep each night. None of these drugs will continue to work, you must have talk therapy to eventually get rid of your depression & anxiety.

i've been on pristiq for almost a month and had hypomania for 2 weeks exactly. it tapered off to where i function alright. with hypomania i had racing thoughts and felt that i could grasp quantum physics or learn a foreign language in a week.i call it the superman syndrome. you become fearless and bulletproof. i slept about 4 hours a day heavily medicating myself with xanax and ambien. i still sleep about 4 or 5 hours a day. i still wonder where the hypomania fits into this picture. i am by no means bi-polar but now am anxiety and depression free. this is a wonder drug for me.
