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.
Cost: < $25 monthly
