Hi!
I read carefully your concern and i would like to say that the best thing to do in your case is to talk with your treating doctor. Pristiq should be use under strict medical advice not on virtual consultation.

Hi!

I read carefully your query and I would like to say that the combination of the drugs is possible especially to treat the tachycardia effect of Pristiq.But to do saw you should contact with the cardiologist and explain all about the Pristiq.

You should start the combination under strict medical controll. The best way is in hospital setings.

Hope it answered to your question!

I forgot to take my 200mg dose of pristiq yesterday morning and by last night, while still unaware of this, began to experience a strange head sensation, as if I was being thrown forward, a lack of balance, a heavy head and felt really low and became very teary. I have taken the correct dose this morning and am wondering when I will feel normal again? Thank you

My GI tract is miserable with diahhrea and cramping. Inkeep getting headaches and my head feels like cement. My Pdoc is on vacation until next Monday.
