> I've never tried effexor so I can't be of much help. Some people do respond to pristiq better from what I have seen on other forums though and some don't do as well on pristiq as effexor. So it is worth a shot. Have you ever tried ixel/milnacipran? I've wondered how that compares to the other SNRIs.
I tried milnacipran a few years ago. I found it to be totally inert. I really don't remember much about it. I'll have to look back on my notes to see if I wrote anything.
I used log my experiences and take notes at every doctor visit. I haven't done that regularly for the past few years, though. I began to feel that it was futile, so I just stopped investing the time and energy.
Some see things as they are and ask why.
I dream of things that never were and ask why not.
