I started on 5mg of Brintellix and since have had a stuffy nose contiuously. That was over 3 weeks ago. Then I started having bad dreams like one where I die or me and my husband divorce one it was 9/11 and I was in one of the WTC buildings as they fell! I'm afraid to sleep! My dr increased it to 10mg and it's helping for my depression but the stuffy nose and bad dream are hell. Also very hard to wake-up and I have a little bit loss of balance at times. The nausea can get real bad too and I'm in the bathroom a lot.
Check this out. All things considered I'd say if that's all that's happening, it's minor compared to this:
I thought I was the only one- it says 1-3 percent , but I have been on a host of antidepressants before -
None have me as vivid and bad dream as this has. The doctor says thank god this is the only side effect (which is true) but I am tired all the time due to this. I wake up heart racing and can't ever seem to get enough sleep because of the constant dreaming.
