I've been on Nuvigil for 5 years for narcolepsy and to help with adhd. It's worked very well but recently I've been very depressed and my depression has overpowered the nuvigil to work properly. So my doctor put me on Brintellix 5mg for 1 week then go up to 10mg. I'm on day 3 of taking it and I have nausea 20 mins after I take it. Will the nausea go away eventually? Otherwise, I've noticed a huge change in my mood and sleep. It's worked great so far aside from the nausea.
How long does the nausea last? Are there instructions about taking it with or without food?
You could try taking some OTC med like Bonine (Meclizine) / Dramamine Less-Drowsy version (it's main ingredient is also Meclizine Hcl) about a half hour to hour before taking the Brintellix. Hopefully it would give you some relief at least for temporary use. If the nausea does not let up after another week or so, please call your doctor and discuss your symptoms with him/her.
