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..

  • Effectiveness
    Moderate (for major depressive disorder)
  • Side effects
    Moderate (decreased sex drive (libido))
  • Adherence
    Never taken as prescribed
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Advice & Tips: For me, this med worked pretty well for my depression, but it destroyed my libido. I have been off it for about a month, and my libido still isn't the same as it was before I started taking Pristiq. Not even close. I've tried other anti-depressants, and most did have a slight negative impact on my sex drive, however Pristiq has been devastating in that area. I'm wondering if the "old me" will ever return in respect to libido.
