Hi All:)

Does anyone take PRISTIQ or LARGACTIL ??

I take both of these for my anxiety, insomnia and depression.

I wonder if anyone else takes these medications and if so what you think of them... do they help... you side effects.... or any more info???

Would help out alot.

Cheers,
Mikki:D

Not heard if either I'm afraid... I've taken citalopram and propanolol...now on mirtazopine, which I've never heard of but I'm popping it like there's no tomorrow ( there might not be if they don't work!). Sorry can't be any help, hope someone responds soon xxx

Largactil is probably better known as chlorpromazine, an antipsychotic/tranquilliser and pristiq is the brand name for desvenlafaxine, an antidepressant.

Never taken either of them myself though.

Cheers for the reply. My pschiatrist has prescribed me with both and yes he gave me those other names too, I just forgot how to spell them...

I use the chlorpromazine at night so reduce my anxiety and to help me sleep and then the desvenlafaxine every morning... not sure if that is doing anything though, it doesn't seem to be I still feel depressed as heck.

How long have you been taking them? They take a while to kick in, like about 4 weeks.
