May I suggest you find a doctor who will help wean you off chemicals using natural amino acid and high levels of nutritional therapy?

I can't remember anything anymore
I thought I was the only one. I am so forgetful and my memory is horrible. I am tapering right now and went from 40mg to 15mg.
Kelly  |  November 25, 2014
Thanks for mentioning this. I've had memory issues for a while, but more so the last six months because of the Viibryd. Thanks again.
Chris  |  September 29, 2014

Pristiq and Anorexia plus other side effects
There is no generic for Pristiq. I know, because I pay the high copay on it every month. My insurance makes me use the generic of any drug that has one, if I am prescribed it.
