Final Thoughts on Pristiq's Sexual Side Effects

It is impossible for your healthcare provider to know whether you will develop any sexual side effects from Pristiq. Also, if a person does develop sexual side effects, it is difficult to know whether these problems are caused by other factors or by Pristiq itself. The timing of the onset of symptoms in relation to when Pristiq was started can help determine if a particular side effect might be related to this drug.
 
If you develop sexual side effects while taking Pristiq, make sure to talk with your healthcare provider. He or she may be able to recommend treatment options. Depending on the severity of your sexual side effects, your healthcare provider may also recommend that you adjust your Pristiq dosage, switch to another antidepressant, or perhaps add another drug that may help limit your sexual side effects.
