Pristiq Description  

Pristiq is a medication used to treat adult depression.  It is an antidepressant belonging to a drug class known as selective serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs). Many specialists believe that depression is caused by an imbalance of specific chemicals in the brain known as neurotransmitters. These transport information from one brain cell to another, which can go out of balance resulting in sadness. This medication works to restore the equilibrium of two neurotransmitters in the brain: serotonin and norepinephrine. 

Pristiq Anxiety 

Unlike SSRIs, which only work on serotonin, SNRIs increase the number of norepinephrine neurotransmitters, which also work in anxiety and depression. Hence, some doctors prescribe it off-label for anxiety. Despite this, studies showed that some patients who took Pristiq 50 mg (the recommended dose) experienced anxiety as a side effect.  Thus, they may need to try different medications to see which is most effective. 

Pristiq Withdrawal Symptoms

Withdrawal symptoms can be difficult to bear, even when reduced carefully. Some people find it easier if they taper in an inpatient-style program providing adequate support and therapies to greatly lessen the suffering that might accompany discontinuation.
