Hey I'm new here and just want to say that I am so glad that I found this site!!! I am on day 7 of Prestiq and feel somewhat better? I don't know... I feel borderline manic though. The first few days were rough. I took it in the am and was sooo out of it. Not really sleepy just really lazy, lethargic!! And now I feel good, energetic and have been getting lots done but I'm scared it might be mania! I have a family history of bipolar but have not been diagnosed myself... so I don't know. I used to be on Lexapro and that worked well but i remember reading that if you are bipolar you should not take it? I'm wondering if it is the same with Prestiq. I was switched off the Lexapro because of sexual side effects- no interest and could rarely have an orgasm. I've tried the Lexapro in combination with Risperdal, then with Wellbutrin to help with the side effects but that did not work at all. Made me feel outside myself, angry and the insomnia with the Wellbutrin forget about it. With Prestiq I have slept okay. I have been waking up a few times during the night but can go back asleep. Also I do get the night sweats too. Weird. ***Oh for everyone who gets really nauseous--- try taking it with food! Also try taking it with a full glass of water. That has worked wonders for me I have not been nauseous at all! My appetite has significantly decreased but I do not feel sick to my stomach. Also thanks for everyone who has posted on other threads. I have read them all and it makes me feel so much better that I am not the only one going through this! It was crazy I never heard of this drug before and couldn't find any info on it. Thanks everyone and hopefully things get better for you all! ;)

Oh another thing! This jaw clenching thing has got to stop! I have tmj and grind my teeth already without it! Has this gone away for anyone?????????
