atrial fibrillation ## Pristiq, which contains the active ingredient Desvenlafaxine, is an antidepressant. Some of the most common side effects include: nausea, drowsiness, sexual dysfunction and constipation. ## For 18 years I have been taking Prozac. Each time I have attempted to change, under the care of a physician, I've touched the bottom of depression again. During the last several years my dosage has been upped to 40 mg in the AM and 40 in the PM. I've suffered anxiety, expecially upon awakening in the morning. In the last 10 years I've been divorced from a man with passive-aggressive tendancies. I go to a well reputed psychologist,exercise and eat well.

Have been on cymbalta and now prrestique....nausea every day and very constipated...have been seeing my gastro dr. and think that the meds have been the reason. ## Unfortunately, most prescription medications can cause both of these side effects, you may also experience: drowsiness, dizziness and headache.

Prestique Number Milligrams
2 Replies RSS
What is the highest number of milligrams of Prestique that should be taken per day? ## The RECOMMENDED adult dosage is 50mg. per day. But these M.D.'s will raise that amount much higher and possible stack this medication on top of other meds so beware you might be taking way to many meds at a much higher dose than necessary. ## Pritiq contains the active ingredient Desvenlafaxine, it is an SNRI antidepressant. For those with hard to treat depression, amounts up to 400mgs a day may be used, but no benefits were shown on any dosages high than that and, as Bruce stated, the normal adult dosage is 50mgs a day. Common side effects may include: nausea, drowsiness, dry mouth and weight changes. Learn more: Are there any other comments or questions? ...

Has anyone experienced this high blood pressure and severe headaches with Prestique 100mg a day? I have been on it for 4 monthes now and have just started experiencing these symptoms this past month. Blood pressure as high as 210/110 and I was in the hospital for 4 days. All cardiac and blood clot issues have been ruled out. I am at my wits end..can someone out there help me? I have also been started on 2 blood pressure pills without effect. My psychiatrist suggessted lowering my dosage to 50mg a day. ## Yes, Pristiq is actually listed with a warning that it can cause hypertension in some people and if a doctor wants someone that already has it to use it, their blood pressure must be well under control, before starting the medication. There is a good chance that the headaches were relat... ...

prestiq-No Hot Flashes!
1 Reply RSS
My doctor gave me prestiq about 6 weeks ago, because we were having no luck controlling my hotflases with hormones. I had a complete hysterectomy @ 37 a year ago and the flashes were a nightmare! This medicine almost COMPLETELY stopped the hotflashes and helped with the mood swings! I was amazed that an antidepressent was the answer! FYI, I also sleep better and have been diagnosed with figromyalgia, which the symptoms are a little more tolerable. ## Some of the things I have read about Prestique are scary. My sister takes it and it has stopped her hot flashes and it has improved her mood. Medco does not cover it and I was wondering how much it costs? I also have high blood pressure (controlled on Norvasc) do you know if that would be a problem? ...
