I just started my new medication today, desvenlafaxine (Pristiq). I'm really nervous. Does anyone have any experience with taking it? Any side effects?

One user reported that desvenlafaxine was much better than anything else they've tried, but cautioned that missing a dose can cause side effects. Another user mentioned experiencing physical side effects to the point of considering legal action against their psychiatrist. Some users reported withdrawal symptoms and "brain zaps" when forgetting to take the medication. Nausea was also mentioned as a common side effect, particularly in the beginning, but it was noted to get better after a month or so.
