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 was put on Pristiq this past June, not for depression, but because I was having severe GI problems. I lost 15 pounds and I really had no weight to lose. After being tested for every possible thing (I believe) and all came back negative, my Internist put me on Pristiq. My symptons did get better but I am not convinced it is a a result of this drug. I am a 52 year old otherwise healthy female who exercises regularly. I really don t want to stay on this drug any longer and want to wean myself. How is the best way to do this. I feel like it makes my brain so foggy. I m on 50 mg. Thanks!
