haven't been here for a while but saw this thread and would like to chime in.

i was on pristiq. my experience was this.
the first week was Great, then it died down gradually over the next few weeks i got worse and worse, i REally wanted to give up, but pdoc and T both told me for some people it takes 6-8 weeks to really tell. AND since i really didn't have any other options before tca/moai trials i figured i had to hang in there.
doc even upped me to 100mg at one point. i noticed no difference at all.
so went back down.

Finally pristiq kicked in for me it was about 8-10 weeks later. but once i leveled it was Great.

i got pregnant so went off it, but i definately plan to get back on it when the time comes.
i do hate the 'start up' time. but i am SO glad i stuck it out.

so i guess my advice is if you aren't having any side effects, and you feel able, try to hang in there at least 8 weeks to see if it works. augment if you have too.
but most of the people that i've talked to that its worked for has taken at least 6 weeks to get to that functional level.

Best of luck all.
