It was just prescribed by my doctor haven't started taking it yet start tomorrow morning. i have panic attacks and depression. Was told the medcines work pretty quickly. Becoming anxious about taking them any input would be greatly appreciated thanks
Hi, buckminster! This is a very good choice of medications for depression/anxiety. The Rexulti should start helping within a matter of a few days to a week or so. The Trintellix is an antidepressant/anxiolytic which works more slowly - you might feel some improvement within the first weeks but it can take 4-6 weeks for the full benefits to become apparent.
I added two links to descriptions of your meds so that you can be familiar with how they work and some possible side effects you might experience. Especially read the For Health Care Professionals because it shows how few people have any serious side effects. The most common are headaches, nausea, and drowsiness that last for a few days to a week or two but they get better every day.
Always feel free to post here with any questions or concerns, but remember your doctor is your best source for professional advice.
Best regards, Wildcat
