I find that my anxiety is getting worse. Constantly have butterflies and tingling in stomach. Smallest setback makes me panic. PDoc wants me to wait a month before making a decision. Is it possible that Trintellix can eventually help anxiety?
Hi, Animosity! Yes, increased anxiety is typical for some people starting Trintellix, actually any antidepressant/anxiolytic, but this usually resolves within just a couple of weeks. And yes, it will eventually help your anxiety but it can take 4-6 weeks to feel the full benefit of the medication.
These types of medications take time to work so try to have patience knowing that things will begin improving very soon.
I have been on .5 for a year and it has helped me tremendously. Hang in there it will get better.
