Comments from related studies:
From this study (5 months ago):
My tremors are horrible and anxiety, anger , loss of interest in many things, work related depression and defeat....worthlessness.
From this study (11 months ago):
My Pdoc recently put me on 1/4th of 50mg of Pristiq in addition to the other two Rxs. I am not prone to headaches and the very day I tried the dosage, I got a severe migraine that lasted two says. I stopped the Rx immediately and reported side effect to my doctor.
We then tried 1/8 of the Pristiq along with my other Rxs. The severe headaches did not return, thankfully. However, I have started to experience feelings of severe anger (which is totally unlike me).
Fortunately, the feelings of Depression and SI have almost subsided but the anger I am feeling is very unsettling. I am so used to turning my feelings inward and punishing myself by feeling supremely depressed...
...I have been on 1/8 of the pill for about a week now and I am going to stop taking it. I have an appt with doc in a week.
I would rather feel incredibly sad for a few days than to go completely ballistic. It is very scary.
I don't think this is the right Rx for me.
