    So I'm a bit nervous. Over the last month I have been becoming more isolated and thinking about suicide more frequently, and in general I am just having more of my old problems back again. I was put on Celexa 7 months ago and was doing good on it, but I guess it just stopped working, as my psychiatrist says.

    So he put me on a new medicine today called Pristiq. Has anyone been on this medicine? Did it work? I've read all the side effects, truthfully, I'm sort of wishing for lack of appetite since I have alot of weight to loose. I have been on Seroquel for about a year and have gained 60 lbs :thumbdown:

    I haven't heard much about it. From the above post though I guess it has a good rep. Believe in it. Enhance the placebo and try to gain some momentum. Just my 2 cents :cool:
