I was on prozac for over a year and then got genetic testing done. my doctor put me on pristiq and this folic acid type supplement called "Deplin". if anyone has any experience with one or both of these meds, please let me know how your experiences have been.

One user mentioned that they started taking Pristiq (desvenlafaxine) at the suggestion of a genetic test administered by their doctor, and it seemed to work for them around week 7. They experienced mild side effects for about two weeks. Another user shared that Pristiq worked mildly for them for about a year, keeping them from feeling suicidal but still experiencing good and bad days. However, experiences with medications can vary greatly between individuals, so it's essential to follow your doctor's advice and monitor your progress closely.
