I started on Pristiq about 10 days ago. It has helped normalize my gut---and my moods/anxiety). (I normally alternate between C and D). Of course, the doctor started me on hormone replacement therapy (Premarin) at the same time, so it may be a combination of the two that is helping. I had more trouble with my tummy with just estrogen in my system, but with both estrogen and progesterine, I'm doing much better.

The only problem I'm having is insomnia. I take the Pristiq in the morning and am wondering if I should take it at night instead. (I had insomnia before I took it, but that was because hot flashes were constantly waking me up....I'm going through menopause), but now I can't sleep unless I take either an Ambien or some Klonopin.

I would love to hear from anyone else taking the Pristiq. Does it keep you awake at night?
