I say go with Effexor, I understand you've tried many and they haven't been helpful. Effexor is the "sub" for Pristiq as far as most paid scription plans go as no generics are currently available. The chemical make up are so similar they are basically one and the same drug. I understand how scary it is to change drugs once something has worked after nothing coming close in the past. It's certainly worth a try in my "undefeated" opinion, as well as several educates ones I've gotten over the last few days. Even if you don't receive the exact same benefits from the new drug, you at least certainly should get "something" not to mention $4.00 wasted is way better than $150 plus. Also I stopped Pristiq cold turkey myself 100 mg after taking for likely 2 yrs maybe, I had no ill effects from doing so, although I understand everyone is different.


Stay with the Pristiq, you know it works for you. Remember that you can buy those pricey pills a few at a time if that helps you get by until payday. Also look on the internet for a general purpose Rx savings card for your county or state. You might be able to bring the cost down some. Pharmacies generally accept them but rarely hand them out. Sending positive vibes your way!!!
