I have dysthymic disorder (a form of depression .. meaning I am just sorda depressed all the time.. no real ups or downs)
I started on it about 4 months ago.. but recently got diagnosed with ADD and now on medicine for that too.. BUT I did find the pristiq worked for a while but when my ADD got bad about a month ago I found my mood was horrible..it didnt' matter how good things were I was so miserable to everyone in my family!
I am on meds for my ADD but I did found Pristiq worked good and it took the constat want for food away. That in itself made my depression lift a bit cause I knew I wasn't eating everything in the house!
I encourage everyone to find the right medicine or natural way and go for it until you find the answer. I have to say its taking me about 8 years to FINALLY have all the peices in place. I realize now that it was a journey to hear and WOW what a journey.. !!
