could pristiq prevent adderall crash?

Posted by Cydnie on February 21, 2011, at 19:09:30

I am trying to figure out why or how pristiq seems to be the only anti-depressant that I can use if I don't want the dreaded adderall crash, that has made me feel suicidal. I went back on pristiq, and though I had side effects, and it's never entirely gotten me out of my depression, the adderall helps immensely and I don't crash at the end of the day. So I tried a bunch of other anti depressants, TCAs, SSRIs, seems I keep ending with a crash, so I went back to pristiq and crashes stopped again! Could it be the NE? I can't figure out why. My pdoc just told me we'll try effexor xr and see if I have less side effects and see if it keeps the crash away, but I just read on this site that it effects dopamine much more than pristiq, so now I am nervous that effexor won't work like pristiq in stopping the crashes. I just took it tonight, and will report back if anyone's interested. But I would love to hear any theories on neurotransmitters that maybe pristiq was hitting differently, because my pdoc told me no one would be able to answer it. I guess it can be just my own body chemistry reacting? No clue!
