not very helpful, but here's some comments.

-it takes 10-12 weeks (in my personal experience for pristiq to even start so your right on the border of it 'working'.

- zyprexa only rarely does it work at 5 for me. i normally have to go up to 10 for me to feel effects. (but that is also when i have weight gain). one tip, if you go up to 10 of zyprexa start drinking lots of water, that helped me sometimes to not gain as much.

in my experience the zyprexa effects are fairly quick.
so either your depression is worsening either on its own or possibly from the pristiq. would be my best guess.

id say call pdoc, but id say if in one week you still feel this bad you've given pristiq a good solid try.

have you ever been on an SNRI before?
