Hi there ~

It seems like you have been recently started on Pristiq (desvenlafaxine) 100 ml for depression. It usually takes about 2-3 weeks on a minimum to become efficacious. Please be patient till the effect of the medication sets in. Drowsiness may be a side effect of the medication and you may need to switch it to the evening dose to sleep the side effect off. This may also help wit the dizziness and light headedness. I hope this helps. Please see a psychiatrist if the problems continue to persist.

Take care.
