Desvenlafaxine and menstrual cramps

I just started on the generic Pristiq a little over a month ago and along with all the other side effects I've seen people complain about on here (headaches, jaw pain, heartburn), I'm suffering from TERRIBLE menstrual cramps! I've never had cramps like this before. Has anyone else experienced this? I'm not sure the two are even related, but I start taking this and all the sudden I'm having terrible cramps, so I'm wondering if there is a correlation. ## Most medications in this class can cause such a side effect, according to NIH reports. You may also experience nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, and mood swings. If they become severe, or suddenly worsen, you should consult your doctor as this might not be the best medication for you. How are you doing, now? Has there ...

Antidepressant Dose timing

Are antidepressants need to be taken at same time daily? I am prescribed the Flupentixol and mellitracen tablet and desvenlafaxine ER in evening. Doctor told to take medicines around 7 to 8 pm. I am taking it at 10 or 11 pm. I am suffering from insomnia. Is it due to the wrong timing that I follow? ## Can you take these in am instead? These meds act differently on everyone. Some antidepressants make you have energy for during day an vice versa. I do know when I was on Zoloft, I was told to take it same timeevery day. I diverted fr that couple times an felt horrible. Talk to your Dr an see if you can take in am. Hope this helps a little.

L189 pill

I found a foil package for 2 pills that were large red diamond shaped pills now they are missing but nothing I Google describing them comes up ## What you're describing sounds just like a 50mg Desvenlafaxine Extended Release manufactured by Ranbaxy. It's an antidepressant generic for Pristiq. Here's what the NIH site describes it as: "50 mg, light pink colored, diamond shaped, biconvex tablets, debossed with ‘L189’ on one side and plain on other side." Does this sound like what you found? Hope this helps! Source: ## I'm sorry no that's not it they have the letters JR on front and 445 on back ## We'd like to start a new thread for the pill "JR 445" since the title of this one describes a pill with "L189" on it. Is the JR 445 pi...
