Just started my first dose last night and I was up till 4am because I felt so nauseous. I know side effects usually subside, I've always been sensitive to side effects. Had to stop taking Lithium because I could never get used to it. I'm on Lamictal as well. (150 mg) and don't have any problems. Just wondering how long side effects took to go away for most people? Walking around like a zombie today!
Trintellix (vortioxetine) is an antidepressant that affects chemicals in the brain that may be unbalanced. Trintellix is used to treat major depressive disorder in adults.
The most common side effects are nausea, constipation, and vomiting. Nausea is usually mild or moderate, and its frequency dose-related. Nausea generally occurs in the first week and last for about 2 weeks. It may continue in some people.
I have been on Trintellix for almost 2 weeks now and i still get really nauseous every morning. When i tried taking it with food i threw it all up so i have been taking it on an empty stomach and then eating about 2 hours later. Oatmeal seems to be the best thing to calm my tummy. I eat a little of that and im better for the rest of the day. I do seem to be having only diarrhea though which sucks. i hope that goes away soon. im just keeping Imodium in my purse for now.
Same experience. I have a cast iron stomach as well, nothing usually upsets my stomach. Been on a 5mg dose for almost a month. Nausea every morning and throughout the late afternoon and evening. Saltines and oatmeal help.
Losing weight as a consequence of the nausea.
I'm going to give it a couple more weeks and if the symptoms don't improve I have to switch to something else.
A shame as there seem to be no other side effects and it works well.
