Suggest alternative of Desvenlafaxine

I take Desvenlafaxine 100mg. everyday. I have ran out before its time to see my dr. BUT I need something to take to help me for the next 4 days. Is there another drug that I could take to help me until I see my dr? I am feeling the loss of this durg & need something until then. I DON T have $2.00 for an answer let alone $15.00. Can you help me at least this one time?

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Desvenlafaxine is an antidepressant. There are many antidepressants of other class like sertraline, but all antidepressants are prescription drugs and not available as over the counter drugs. Therefore a physician’s prescription is essential.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
