Hi, I have been taking Pristiq for six years now. My doctor had GeneSight testing done and Pristiq was one of three antidepressants that I can take. I am taking 75mgs. One hundred mgs. I believe is a high dose for Pristiq. Perhaps you need a lower dose. Do not stop taking it on your own,withdrawal is very difficult and could be dangerous. I hope you find the one for you.
Thank you! I plan to ask my doctor about a decrease in dose this week. I also had the gene testing done and it was in my “green zone”. I previously was on Lexapro which did absolutely nothing and the gene testing showed it in my “red zone”. I’m glad pristiq works well for you!
