Re: Genetic Testing and Antidepressant Prescribing

I have had the testing and, thankfully, I did not have to pay the full price. It narrowed my choices down to one medication, Pristiq, that would not have overwhelming side effects. The medication has worked okay, but the harsh side effects I felt with others have not been present. I still have some side effects, however. I feel much more lethargic, and at the end of the day I have no desire to do much of anything. In the last week I decided to experiment with not taking it, and there have been a few side effects from the withdrawal.
