Tried Caplyta as an augment to pristiq. no bueno

Posted by TriedEveryMedication on June 23, 2022, at 18:01:08

I have TRD and GAD, plus attention/motivational issues and sleep maintenance insomnia.

Taking 50mg Pristiq.

Doc tried having me add Caplyta.

Tried 42mg at night

The good: completely erased my anxiety at 42mg. Just gone.

The bad:
First off, it supposedly helps sleep, but I found myself waking up several times

Second, the morning after my first dose I was thrown into a very dark place. My depression was so much worse.

I tried a 2nd dose the next night at 21mg. Anxiety was still gone, the dark dark depression was a bit better but still bad.

3rd night I tried 10.5mg. Anxiety came back. Depression was less oppressive. Still a bit of sleep disturbance.

I lasted 3 nights on this stuff. The worsened depression it triggered in me was just unbearable.

Anyway, just posting my experience in case it is of interest
