Pristiq Pruritus Causes and Reviews


What is itching?

Itching is an irritating sensation that makes you want to scratch your skin. Sometimes it can feel like pain, but it is different. Often, you feel itchy in one area in your body, but sometimes you may feel itching all over. Along with the itching, you may also have a rash or hives.

What causes itching?

Itching is a symptom of many health conditions. Some common causes are

  • Allergic reactions to food, insect bites, pollen, and medicines
  • Skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, and dry skin
  • Irritating chemicals, cosmetics, and other substances
  • Parasites such as pinworms, scabies, head and body lice
  • Pregnancy
  • Liver, kidney, or thyroid diseases
  • Certain cancers or cancer treatments
  • Diseases that can affect the nervous system, such as diabetes and shingles
What are the treatments for itching?

Most itching is not serious. To feel better, you could try

  • Applying cold compresses
  • Using moisturizing lotions
  • Taking lukewarm or oatmeal baths
  • Using over-the-counter hydrocortisone cream or antihistamines
  • Avoiding scratching, wearing irritating fabrics, and exposure to high heat and humidity

Contact your health care provider if your itching is severe, does not go away after a few weeks, or does not have an apparent cause. You may need other treatments, such as medicines or light therapy. If you have an underlying disease that is causing the itching, treating that disease may help.

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
