I have had MDD for 10 years and have been on every antidepressant out there. I am currently on a cocktail of several drugs, which has me somewhat okay. But I am a shadow of who I once was when it comes to holding down a job. Thinking of giving Brintellix a shot.
Started 10 mg of brintellix today. Took in a.m.with food and spent a lot of time on toilet this afternoon. Not a big deal after other crap I've been thru! Your story sounds like mine. Dr recently took my 20 yrs. of Xanax away from me. Put me on .5 klonopin. Tried several antidepressants all with horrible side effects. Did not have anxiety today on a new pill so that's a plus. Will keep you informed of my progress. Every attempt at new pill puts me further depressed. Let's hope this one works! Can't take much more!
Still doing great. Haven't been on near what you have but, I have serotonin syndrome also & it is actually listed as one of my allergens. Very bad experience. Just had a Dr prescribe sleep aid. Thank god I read the pamphlet, serotonin. I have a feeling Dr plans on increasing me to 20 mg but if the 10 keeps doing its job I wont need it. Will keep you updated. I still can't believe it's working.

Will the effectiveness of my antidepressants change if I take it at night instead of in the morning?
