Hi, Michele, Cara, and Angela! Do you remember me? (I remember all of you when you were pregnant!) I haven't been on this board in several years, but I used to post regularly. I posted on the Eating for IBS board earlier, but didn't get any responses so I'm posting here too.
I am going through menopause and was having terrible hot flashes and insomnia at night. Then the anxiety (and lil depression) started. About 10 days ago, the doctor started me on Pristiq, a new AD that is similar to Effexor. I am also on hormone replacement therapy (Premarin, a combination of estrogen/progestrone), and my IBS A has been so much better. But I'm still having trouble sleeping at night. I feel antsy....like I've had too much coffee. I take the Pristiq in the morning. So I'm having to take either a Klonopin or Ambien pill at night. The doctor wants me to continue taking the Pristiq and see if my sleep improves.
Has anyone else had experience with Pristiq, and if so, when did you take it, at night or in the morning? Did it cause insomnia with you?
I'd love to hear from anyone who is currently on this.
