> It's worth a try, although I found Pristiq much less effective in controlling anxiety symptoms compared to its parent drug, Effexor.

Pristiq's ratio is slightly more adrenergic than Effexor, but mostly serotonergic. It also does not block the dopamine transporter like high doses of venlaxfaxine, that appears to be a function of the parent molecule or perhaps another metabolite. Also it only has 2 doses for better or for worse. Personally it works to keep feelings of despair at bay. I haven't taken Effexor, so I can't make a comparison. For me has less side effects than prozac, lexapro, and cymbalta.
