Onset of Dupuytren contracture and use of anti-depressents?

Have you heard of any connection to the onset of DC and the use of anti-depressents? My husband seems to have rapidly progressing DC, and the only “event” we can think of that coincides with the beginning of it is that he began taking Pristiq about 18 months ago.




There is no published information connecting Pristiq usage and Dupuytren contracture.  Some drugs have been indirectly related to Dupuytren onset, but not Pristiq at this time. 

I suggest you investigate the use of Alternative Medicine methods to possibly slow down or halt the progression of his Dupuytren contracture.  Let me know if I can help you in any way.  TRH
