I was started on Trintellix 10mg once a day over 2 months ago. If I don't take it with Zofran, I get nauseous to the point of vomiting within an hour of taking it. I thought such a side effect would subside after the first month, but it definitely hasn't. Is it normal to still be sick? I feel absolutely fine if I take the Zofran, but can I really take that long term, like every day for as long as I am on Trintellix? I'm worried I'm not going to be able to tolerate it, which stinks because it has been helping my depression. I also had an initial side effect of itching all over my body, which went away, and is now back again. :( I'm dreading going back to the doctor because I do not want to start all over again on new medicines. I've tried so many (Paxil, Prozac, Lexapro, Effexor, Abilify) that haven't worked, I'm afraid I'm running out of options. I just want to feel better.
I could not tolerate Trintellix. I had non-stop vomiting. It is known for the nausea it can cause. If it has not gone away after 2 months, the side effect may not decrease.You should not be so sick after 2 months. I have also tried many different antidepressants. I can relate to running out of options and wanting to feel better. It is hard to start over on a new antidepressant. You may want to see a Psychiatrist if you are not already. They specialize in meds and may have some options for you. I have heard that Wellbutrin works well for others.
Let us know how it goes.
YES, Courtney I agree with my friend Janie, Some people really have a time adjusting to this medication but also in this length of time it would be a good idea to let the doctor know and maybe there is something they can add that well help with the NAUSEA unless you don't seem to be getting much help from it in the long run then it may just be time for a change for you. Best wishes. Chuck1957
I absolutely can't take it. I gave it over a month but the constant nausea kicked my butt. Also, it didn't touch my anxiety. It just can't help with depression if I feel sick all the time. Tomorrow I see my doctor. Hopefully, I can go back on Cymbalta (I've been weaning off), or he can prescribe something else.
I have a stomach of Steel. .I thought... but this stuff seems toxic!
I am in the same boat. I have been on Trintellix since May 2017. Was on 10 mg and nausea just seemed to be calming down and now ramping it up to 20 mg. I have also tried several other ADs. My depression has improved but I feel like crap at least half the time, randomly. Also going around with insurance company to get it approved.
Same with me, I had absolutely no idea what was wrong with me. I did what my doctor told me to do, take it with lunch or dinner. All of a sudden, I would start salivating and boom. Horrible feeling but... the med has helped me with my mood and anxiety. I’ve been on it almost 4 months and I’m not sure why this is still happening. Makes me wonder wonder what is in this stuff!
