Francesca (4 years ago):

I have been on pristiq for two weeks 50mg. I don't feel any change or improvement. Can someone
advise me as to how long does it take to actually
notice an improvement? Previously i was on paxil
20mg. which made me feel like a detached person
could not stand that feeling.

  • From this study (1 week ago):

  • Recently went in to treatment to get off of a hydrocodone addiction following neck surgery. The doctor staryed me on suboxone. This is the second time i was treated for this because i have been on a pain management program for neck problems. The dr drug screens me everytime i go there. While in treatment last year, and for my very first drug screen this year nefore restarting suboxone, all my other tests for drugs have been negative, because i do not take anything else . However, this last 2 drug screens came back positive for benzos, and r he only thing i may have taken different is an herbal cleanse, diet pill.
