Comment:
The first 2 days all I did was sleep. After that, no sleepiness. I do have a dry mouth but other than that, no side effects at all. I really do feel different since taking the drug - a very good different. My family has also commented on the change in me. I was on Lexapro previously and I'm much happier with Pristiq both because of the less side effects and the overall change in me.

I have been reading about everyones experience with Pristiq. I would like to say they have been helpful but come on, a report on how you are feeling after being on the medication for 2, 6, 7 days! A report after a month would be good feedback.
