Do you feel that your doctor will refuse to prescribe the cymbalta anymore, and that it's no longer an option to get it from him at all?

Expert:  Anna replied 7 years ago.
OK, sorry about that. My mistake...

Pristiq is a SNRI class antidepressant medication (sames as Cymbalta)that is on the newer side of options for treatment. This link takes you to a site that gives a wide variety of information in an easy to read format and has videos, and isn't put out by the maker.

Here is a link to the site that the manufacturer gives to health care professionals to use when prescribing and shows all the official information:

Here is their patient web page:

4 days isn't a long time when we're talking about an adjustment to this kind of medication, but if you're still too uncomfortable after 7-10 days, I'd see your doctor again and go over your other options. Most people adjust within a week or so and then the side effects lesson considerably.
