From this study (2 years ago):
I have occasional skipped heart beats, but since taking prenisone they have become extremely noticeable and bothersome. Also feel weak and shaky when they start. Can't exert myself.
From this study (4 years ago):
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.
Gary Krietsch on Jan, 20, 2011:
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.
