Pristiq Side Effects
Less Common Pristiq Side Effects
Rare Pristiq side effects occurred in less than 2 percent of people taking the drug. Because these side effects are so uncommon, it is difficult to tell whether they are caused by Pristiq or something else. There is a good chance that these "side effects" could be completely unrelated to Pristiq.
These less common side effects include but are not limited to:
- Hot flashes
- Delayed ejaculation
- Lack of orgasm
- Increased LDL cholesterol ("bad" cholesterol).
You may experience some or none of the Pristiq side effects listed in this article. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will have side effects from a medicine that you have never tried. Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects while taking the drug or if something "just does not seem right." While it may not be a side effect of Pristiq, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
