I was given a months worth of samples today from my pcp. I have severe anxiety but not depression. Will this help me at all? I'm scared to take it from the side effects.
I suffer from Major Depression and Brintellix is formulated for that purpose. My psychiatrist told me, and I verified with research, that Brintellix has no effect on anxiety. I am still taking Lorazepam for those symptoms.
Everyone is different, so please contact your doctor for more information.
I am being treated with Brintellix for Major Depression. However, the last couple of years I've developed the side effect of anxiety to several depression medications. When I was started taking 10 mg. Brintellix, it helped with the depression, but I also developed anxiety again. When the dosage was increased to 20 mg., the anxiety went away for the most part. Regarding the side effects, mine were unpleasant, but only last several days ... they came back when we increased the dose, but again only lasted several days. Good luck!!
