    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 50 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: 50 mg is for everyone but can go to 100 but usually no difference at all.. I was on effexor and then cynbalta both which didn't work out for me and then this one did.. all 3 are serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (SNRI) antidepressant. ... It increases serotonin and norepinephrine activity in the brain, which regulates mood.

  • Effectiveness
    Major (for depressed mood)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 100 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: The efficacy for Bipolar1 is major because I am experiencing a significant decrease in the depressive episodes.(not having) Therefore, what a major wonder this anti depressant is doing so far. especially, because life circumstances kind of warrant depression..HA! and because I have had no side effects. I switched straight across from 120mg Cymbalta to the 100mg of Pristiq overnight. Last summer when starting Pristiq I attributed many side effects to the med. Maybe looking back, I was at a different place physiologically. I know we change and meds stop working or old ones do work that didn't work before. Hope you all find success..
