I've been on brintellix over a month and for a while now my eyes have been sensitive to light and glare and have a headache around my eyes. I don't know if it's the headache causing the eye discomfort or if it's the other way around.
I have not heard of these side-effects, and they are not mentioned in any clinical study I can find. Please consult your doctor, especially if you are taking other medications.
I get migraines so I am familiar with these symptoms. I have had exactly 2 migraines since March. I am no longer taking medication for migraine (topamax). Last year I was getting at least one a month, even on Topamax.
Your experience will be different, of course.
