Is pristiq 25mg equal to effexor xr 37.5mg? Will the pristiq be stronger? Insurance will not pay for effexor but will pay for pristiq.

When it comes to these medications, it really depends on which one works best for you and the only thing you can do is try the Pristiq to see if it helps you.

The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, mood swings, and weight changes.

Have you started the Pristiq, yet?
