I have Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) with depression. Like everyone else, I've been on pretty much everything that's out there. I started Trintellix 2.5 weeks ago. The first couple of days, I had a good feeling, like this was the one. I had no side effects... none of the stomach pain, nausea, or vomiting. But as I closed in on the 2 week mark, my anxiety started getting worse. And nonstop. Now I'm debating whether I should stay on it and hope the anxiety goes away or go back to my Effexor (which helps the most, but with side effects). Any thoughts on this?
Hi, SpyderJames! Increased anxiety is practically a given side effect of all antidepressants for the first few days to weeks. There's a very good chance that if you can hang in just a bit longer the anxiety will resolve and you'll feel the full benefits by 3-4 weeks after starting.
Best wishes, Wildcat
