My psychiatrist has put me on Brintellix as too many other antidepressants gave me huge side effects. He told me that this medicine doesn't cause a lot of unwanted effects. I have a very fragile digestion system and i am diagnosed with Irritable Colon Syndrome.
After few weeks with Brintellix i have heartburn and my libido is very much decreased. I don't understand why as these are not listed side effects of this medicine?
I'm sorry, but gastrointestinal issues occurred in 20% of people (dose dependant) and loss of libido (or sexual function disorders) were reported in 20% to 33% of people (also dose dependant). I have no idea how you have concluded they are not listed? It took me a couple of minutes to find out: https://www.drugs.com/pro/trintellix.html
