anyone used vortioxitine for acute anxiety?
Potter56; Vortioxetine is used a lot but in most cases, it is more for severe DEPRESSION to chronic depression now saying that depression and anxiety can cross with many of us and symptoms can be very close. Many people don't even know they are depressed until they are able to get it under control. and with many medications, you get one under control the other meaning anxiety follows. But if you are having more panic attacks or severe anxiety I would talk with your doctor again and ask most do much better on other medications when it is mostly Anxiety related. Please don't get me wrong I am not saying this will not work for anxiety the sedative part alone is enough to help you with the Anxiety these things are all connected together with many of us. Have you tried other medications and they did not work would be one reason a doctor would go to this to try to get the anxiety from another angle. But you can type the name of this drug up in the search bar at the top And read some don't read too much then people get scared of medications but this really seems more for Depression. Your post will stay here and we can hope others that may have gotten relief from anxiety from it. But would not be my first choice. Good luck to you.
I am in agreement with Chuck. Vortioxetine is definitely used in severe depression, and not really for anxiety. Please speak with your physician in depth regarding your symptoms and voice your concern over the medication in terms of it being for anxiety. There are better first line choices out there for anxiety.
