I start trintellix 10 mg for a week, felt better the day after but didn’t sleep for a week then decide to take 5 mg in morning.First 4 days just wanted to stay in bed.Day 5 ,felt so good I did grooming, cooking, went outside.Sleeping is a bit better( using imovane and ativan). Cross my finger and hope that I have finally find the medication to stop anxiety.”

For Depression “I’ve been on 5mg for 5 days and I’m supposed to increase to 10mg after 7 days but right after I swallow it my stomach burns like on fire for 3 hrs. I’ve tried eating before (but no appetite) so not able to eat much. I’m hoping stomach pain subsides when I go to 10mg if not may need to switch to another one.”

For Major Depressive Disorder “After nothing else worked then came Trintellix. So far the only antidepressant that has worked me. I’m back to my old self!”

For Major Depressive Disorder “I have maybe experienced sporadic minor relief but my side effects (nausea, hives, headaches, sudden and explosive vomiting, sexual dysfunction) only get worse.I have never experienced a totally depression free day on this medicine.I doubt a good doctor would prescribe this expensive medication unless he/she was very receiving some sort of incentive from the pharmaceutical company. It is really worthless. I’d be better off taking arsenic, probably.”

For Depression “This drug works! It’s taken a long time for it to kick in for me (about 3-4 months) but I’m so happy I stuck with it. Prior to Trintellix I had terrible anxiety, panic, dissociation.. anxiety was so bad I lost 15 pounds.. That’s a lot of weight for me.. I was so sickly. Thanking God for creating people that creates medication that helps people. No one asked to be born with this disease. Please don’t be ashamed to take something your brain may need. By the way, I am an RN and support medication 100%. Praying for everyone. I was previously on Celexa 20mg for 5 years. I’ve had GAD and panic since I was 19, it’s genetic for me. God bless!”

For Major Depressive Disorder “I took this drug for 4 weeks. I had failed a four week trial of Lexapro which I was placed on after 12 years on Effexor, a drug that totally stopped working for me about a year ago. I was queasy for the entire time I was on Trintellix. I threw up several times. I received no discernible benefit from this medication and stopped taking it abruptly. That may not be the wisest course and I don’t necessarily recommend it. But I became fed up with the queasiness. Initially, I felt a lot better and my energy returned. Now, ten days out, I have had a few spells of flu-like symptoms. I feel that I received no therapeutic benefit from this drug.”
