I would like to hear if anyone is having good success taking Trintellix? I am taking it for anxiety/depression. So far, it has worked much better for me than any of the other ADs - except for one problematic side effect- which I am getting under control by backing down on the dose from 20mgs. to 10mgs. I really like this AD. I have tried many. Wellbutrin used to work well for me, but quit working. None of the other antidepressants helped me to treat my anxiety/depression. Please share any good news about Trintellix and how it works for you? Thanks!
I remain hopeful. I just finished my 3 rd week. The headaches and nausea are no longer a problem. My situation is a bit different. In 1981 was given 3 units of blood before childbirth... 2 years ago I was diagnosed with Hep-C, which has been treated and cured. All those years of pain, fatigue and so forth are now referred to as fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue.
For 4 years, I ltook care of my parents... they have passed, my Pa recently... and the depression, fibro, fatigue have me paralyzed... I NEED THIS MED TO WORK... but he also gave me Ativan for sleep... omg, I have felt like I’m detached, more depressed, weak as a lamb ... I’m strong willed in the worse conditions but I don’t know how to fight it. I’m not taking anymore Ativan EVER... I’m going to push thru with the Trintilex for at least 8 weeks and continue to anticipate feeling better.
It sounds as tho you are doing the same... and nothing would make me happier than our mutual success!
Yes, 4 months or so in, after side effects subsided which took a while, all is good! Worth getting over the side effects!
