Just started brintellix. On it 6 days. Having nAuseu and some dizziness. First 3 days took it at8am... bad dizziness, some nausea, last 3 days taken mid morning or just before noon, not as much dizziness but still nausea. Does anyone take this at bedtime? Having bad insomnia for 3 months now since doing klonopin taper. MDD with some axiety/rumination. Tried Remeron for 1 week... did not help enough for sleep at15mg , 30 mg and now tapering at7.5mg same and going down again to 3.5mg. Taking 1 mg Ativan at bedtime, with remeron and gapapentin 300 mg( 2 weeks) Sleep only 2-4 hours. Planning to stick with brintellix another week and see if mood/sleep improves. Very sensitive to medications due to problems with metabolizing/methylation.
Tigers; Really this is common you get the worse of the side effects for 2 weeks then they well begin to subside for you and don't keep changing the time your taking it take about the same time each day. for at least the 2 weeks prior to stoping and talk with you doctor before you just stop you should have to tapeer it down until you are back off of it but after 2 weeks with continued use and can take as much as 6 to 8 weeks to reach the full blood leverl of this medication.
