Tue, 29 Jun 2010
I took wellbutrin two yrs ago and developed symptome of GERD, inability to swallow comfortably, abdominal pain. Took thousands of dollars of tests and was told it was not the medication, it was merely a coincidence. Fast forward to last month when I began taking a similar med - Pristiq. It took three weeks but the swallowing problem, throat clearing and stomach pain have all returned. Saw my psychiatrist and moved back to Effexor. It's sad we did not know about this before all that I had to deal with.
Fri, 19 Nov 2010
I am a 42 year old female who was started on 50 mg. once a day Pristiq for depression. It has been 4 days and I have lower abdominal pain everyday all day and night. I have been taking Tylenol for the pain around the clock. I also can't sleep much. I wake up everyday at 2am. I will see if these symptoms go away but I don't know if I can tolerate the pain. I sweat alot too, but that I can deal with
