Antidepressant: Pristiq (desvenlafaxine) is a relatively newer snri antidepressant. Because it is newer, there is no currently available generic version. As such, it is generally more expensive than other available antidepressants. Approved uses include unipolar depression. Dosing is once per day. There is no currently compelling reason to use Pristiq prior to trying other older, proven ssris antidepressants.
