I have tried most antidepressants with only increased anxiety
I have had no increase in anxiety using this medication. I can't say if it has decreased because until recently (before starting Brintillix) I have had no anxiety. I have been having anxiety problems due to life issues, but Brintillix has had either a neutral effect or a decrease in my anxiety.
My friend was put on it about 2 months ago. She hasn't said anything about a decrease in anxiety, but I notice things don't rattle her as much, and she handles little problems better.
My husband was put on 5mg Brintellix for depression 2 months ago... no anxiety, was on 60mg paxil, and also every other antidepressant you can think of, Abilify etc, I think at this point its untreatable, its been going on for 15 years. :( also takes Zyprexa before bed and Ritalin 2 times a day to get him moving. Not very helpful I know but maybe someday we'll find a solution.
