Changed to Pristiq 50 mg from 150mg of Effexor. It seems to be controlling symptoms of depression. I have experienced symptoms of moodiness. The Dr. prescribed 25mg of Lamictal at bedtime for moodiness. I am doing great now. My insurance covers both meds.

Comment:
Had a horrible anaphylactic (allergic) reaction with the first dose which, 4 days later, I'm still trying to recover from. Signs: nausea, mini-seizures.
