    I have been taking Prestiq for three weeks and since the very first day have been experiencing horrible abdominal swelling and gas. This is extremely painful and not normal for me. Should I go to the doctor or will this side effect go away?

    Jen,

     

    I couldn't find anything about gas or abdominal swelling in the Pristiq prescribing information. The listed side effects are nausea, dizziness, insomnia, hyperhidrosis, constipation, somnolence, decreased appetite, anxiety, and specific male sexual function disorders.

     

    That doens't mean that your problems aren't from Pristiq. I suggest you call your doctor about this.

     

    Feel better soon,

    Teri

    My husband is on prestiq and he has gas all day and night. IT is the worse I have ever seen. Also he was put into the hospital right after taking this medicine and was told he had intestinal flu.  He stays sick.  Does anyone experience the same thing my husband is going through?
