Comments from related studies:
From this study (4 days ago):
Currently take pantoprazole twice daily for acid reflux and stomach upset. Has worked fine for years. Started taking Pristiq and acid reflux has returned.
From this study (1 week ago):
Never a clot but newly prescribed medicine Pristiq and I have Factor V, Type 1 Diabetes, high cholesterol and use a fentanyl patch and these were all warnings on Pristiq. I take wellbutrin 300 and Zoloft and Prozac didn't work.
I see an endocrinologist, neurologist, family practice, pain management. My depression is because of pain. I've only been to one pain doctor and I must have a tolerance to opiates. I've tried oxycodone 15mg x many, dilaudid 8 mg x many, morphine 30 x many, Opana Er x many. Not all at once and always take prescribed amount but it never works. Been prescribed the same garbage for 6 years and have had pain epidurals and radio frequency ablations. Was pretty exited about laser surgery and then I was told they don't take my insurance when I have a BCBS PPO
I'm afraid doctors like me psychiatrist don't look atoll my medical history before prescribing things like Pristiq.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
constant white thick film on tongue, bad breath, also builds up on teeth (plaque) constantly brushing teeth scraping and brushing tongue. also suffering from major chills. Have had all sorts of blood work done came back negative, that's why I feel it may be a reaction from my pills. Very dry mouth, drink aprox 3 litres of water per day.
