Trintellix Reviews

Trintellix (vortioxetine): “Great experience so far. Month three, ramping up to 20 mg a day. Constipation side effect eliminated by 2 fiber capsules a day. No sexual side effects and feeling much more like myself! No weight gain! ”

Trintellix (vortioxetine): “So, back in the day I started with Wellburrin, Lexapro, Zoloft etc…tried it all and nothing was working. Finally my doctor switched me to Trentillex. There wasn’t really any side effects when first starting. After about a month and a half, I finally felt something. The darkness went away. The despair, anxiety, and gripping hell that kept me from getting out of my own bed. It’s all gone. As if it was lifted before my very own eyes. Life is great now. I’m truly happy for the first time in years. Please, give this a try, push through the side effects, and see what you feel like after 1-2 months. It’s a small price to pay for a better life.”

Trintellix (vortioxetine): “Week four on Brintellix, 10mg to start…upped to 20mg for 3 weeks now no side effects as of yet. I’m feeling better every day it seems. I feel happy again, less agitation, more energy and motivation. My personal relationships, which were quickly deteriorating are seeming to return to normal! My only wish is that I’d found this medication much sooner. Best wishes to anyone else with this medication! (My insurance is needing a pre-authorization to cover this medication…just a note for others.)”

Trintellix (vortioxetine): “I had been diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder and have been treated with medicines that at that time were the best. Venlafaxine being the latest. However the effects were decreasing over time. 12 years and has so many side effects. Now I am on Brintellix 20mg daily…wow there is life. My mood is elevated, my outlook and self esteem and confidence has returned to normal. My energy level has skyrocketed. My sleep is more restful. Negative thoughts are diminished. Day to day living is now controllable. Clear thought process not drugged feeling. A very content person. Focus on the enabling versus the negativity. Started on 10mg daily increased to 20mg after 3 weeks and a slow reduction in my venlafaxine. One side effect is nausea I noted but a dry snack helps”


Trintellix (vortioxetine): “This medication is a game changer. I’ve been on 20 mg once per day (at night works best for me) for about 5 months. It is by far the best medication I have tried. Initially started on 10 mg, and raised my dose 2 months in. Pros : Overall heightened mood, more energy, ability to feel array of emotions, no sexual dysfunction (many anti-depressants are famous for cashing this), increases ability to enjoy activities I used to love. Neutral : does not treat my anxiety very well alone. Cons: nausea when starting the medication and increasing dose, more expensive than traditional anti depressants. Overall, I love this medication. I will definitely continue on it. I have seen a big improvement since trying Trintellix.”

Trintellix (vortioxetine): “I have been pretty medicine resistant to most medications, the best medication for me was Zoloft until it lost its effectiveness on me. I have been on Brintellix for about a month now, was upped to 20mgs last week, and it is just amazing for me. I feel a sense of happiness and hope that I haven’t felt in a long time, I really didn’t see as much improvement until the medication was upped to 20 mgs, then so far it has been awesome, I have had no side effects other than the first few days I was a little antsy and lightheaded.”

Trintellix (vortioxetine): “I am bipolar and have major depression issues and have been on tons of meds, to the point where I have felt like a pin cushion for these meds. Either they make me so tired I can’t do nothing or they just don’t work. I started taking Brintellix 3 months ago and I am on 10 mg a day. Side effects, whether I took it with food or not I would throw up almost every day ugh…..but on the up side it has made me feel like me again, not miserable and naggy looking at everything in a negative way! The nausea is still there sometimes in the morning but I will take it. So I can cope with everyday issues without freaking out and to be somewhat at peace with myself.”

Trintellix (vortioxetine): “I have been on medication for about 4 weeks. Anti-depressants have always been my best friend. This drug has been remarkable thus far. No major side effects physically. The main problem I am dealing with are dreams but mostly nightmares. I take my medication usually before lunch. I missed it one day and took it before bed time, never again. I was awake most of the night. I am successfully weaning off of xanax & THC during this period with great success. No thoughts of suicide. Life seems better. I’m in my late 40’s and a full-time student. I would totally recommend this medication because this is the first time in life that I feel more myself. Hey, I can even crack a smile….something I haven’t done in years.”

Trintellix (vortioxetine): “I had given up that there was any drug that could lift me out of the recurring cycles of clinical depression. I had tried dozens of medications over the years, some worked for a time but I came to the point that my depression was at least I thought untreatable. This last bout had me down in bed for nearly 2 months. I was “blessed” to stumble upon Brintellix after my wife had recommended it after seeing it transform one of her patients. The key is it takes a very long time to work and you must be patient. I am now almost 6 weeks in and the depression has completely lifted and feeling better every day. Yes, there are side effects.. headaches, insomnia and confusion but they go away. This drug saved my life! Give it 6-8 week at minimum!”

Trintellix (vortioxetine): “I had no ill side effects with this medication. But, my doctor gave me samples, and when the samples were gone, my insurance wouldn’t pay for the medication. I came off of it even though it worked because of the cost.”

Trintellix (vortioxetine): “This medication has helped me so much! I tried Prozac, Zoloft, and Lexapro before starting this medication. I felt much better in about 3 days with Trintellix. It is so nice to have more focused energy and be able to function again at work as well as having fun with my kids again. Great medication!”

Trintellix (vortioxetine): “I feel so much better since I started this medicine. I get more done and have much more positive attitude about things.”

Trintellix (vortioxetine): “I started this med in September of 2015. I have been on 30 psychotropic medications over the past twenty years to manage my MDD and anxiety. Had 30-ish ECT treatments as well. Also have regular CBT therapy. Nothing was working for more than a couple of months. However I started Trintellix and saw improvement within a month. After a decade of a depressive episode that I never got into remission from, I was in partial remission. No, it isn’t complete remission but I’ve dealt with the fact that that may not be in the cards for me. I haven’t had active suicidal thoughts in a year. Until that point, I hadn’t gone without suicidal thoughts for more than a month. This drug has been a life saver for me. No side effects.”


Trintellix (vortioxetine): “Best (and most expensive) medication I’ve ever been on. I’ve been prescribed to every other SSRI and they gave me side effects of sleepiness, and indifference. I have only experienced a slight nausea for about 2 hours, 15 minutes after I take my Trintellix. This only lasted the first two weeks. The nausea is the only reason I give this a 9/10. Anxiety and paranoia have been greatly reduced, energy is amazing and no sleepiness or indifference. Had genetic testing done and I am deficient in folic acid and don’t produce it on my own. I complement the Trintellix with methylfolate by biotics lab (Deplin is expensive). I’m happier than I’ve ever been and no sexual dysfunctions have happened so I am extremely thankful for this medication”

Trintellix (vortioxetine): “Have Major Depressive Disorder & PTSD. MAJOR ANXIETY DAILY. LIFE WAS UNBAREABLE. Brintellix 10mg has been a miracle for me. Haven’t had suicidal thoughts, I’m able to work again.. I can feel the real, happy me. I’ve also tried many other “anti depressants” that didnt work well for me. THIS! by FAR, is the best. Worked quickly too. Good luck to all. Also I am blessed to have the prescriber I do who specializes in PTSD.”

Trintellix (vortioxetine): “I’ve had the side effects of nausea, diarrhea and low sex drive. Even so, it has helped improve my mood and reduced my anxiety. The side effects have decreased in the past few weeks but at first were bothersome. Largest complaint is the copay! Our cost is $122 after insurance! Outrageous. I probably wont be able to afford it for long. Sad because I finally found something that was working.”

Trintellix (vortioxetine): “I’ve been on Brintellix now for 6 weeks, I started on 1/2 of 5mg tablet Bc I hadn’t tolerated any other SSRI. Increased to 5mg about 3 weeks ago. I’ve found a new found hope in life. I had the constipation, but increased my fiber, started on Benefiber daily and increased water consumption and even have had the desire to exercise which also helps. I’m sold on this medication, I haven’t felt this good in years!”

Trintellix (vortioxetine): “I have been depressed for 12 years. Throughout my life I’ve contemplated suicide, I had paranoid thoughts, and had very little self esteem. I have been on and off multiple antidepressants and couldn’t find one that made me feel like myself again. Finally, when I started to experience severe mood swings and found myself becoming angry for no reason to the people I loved, I decided I should try to get help once again. My doctor started me on Brintellix and it has helped me so much. Fortunately, I don’t experience any side effects. My mood is elevated, I’m gaining my confidence back, I’m more motivated, and most importantly I feel like myself again. I’m taking 10mg currently and find no need to go to a higher dose. The only downfall is the cost”


Trintellix (vortioxetine): “I have been taking this med for about a month. I am taking it with Wellbutrin 300 mg. I am taking 5 mg. It has helped tremendously. The first day I took it, I was nauseous & had a headache. I have been taking it @ night, about an hour before bedtime, and have not had either symptom again. My energy level has increased, I have been able to do things I need to do, more importantly I have been able to do some of the things I want to do. The feeling that life was too overwhelming is gone. I have my sense of humor back and I am not on the roller coaster of crying @ the drop of a hat or being so angry I wanted to smack the skin off someone’s face. I am very pleased with this medicine & hope it continues to do as well as it has been doing for me”

Trintellix (vortioxetine): “I’ve had MDD since I was 10 yrs old and now I’m 35, this has been the best med I’ve found yet! And it doesn’t take a month to get in your system. It’s the BEST!!!!!”

Trintellix (vortioxetine): “I’ve suffered from crippling anxiety and depression for over a decade. I have been on every class of psych meds and they all gave me side effects, and didn’t really help much. I was extremely skeptical and didn’t think this medicine would work. Man I was wrong! I was in the process of getting disability, because my anxiety and depression made me home bound. This med improved me to the point I was able to work and attend school again! My anxiety was manageable, and my depression came to a stop. I didn’t even have side effects! I’m on 20 mg. I’m glad I tried this, or I wouldn’t have my life back.”

Trintellix (vortioxetine): “I was admitted into a clinic & was monitored for 3 weeks. After the 2nd day I started feeling a change & after 4 weeks it’s still good. Energy levels are up, thinking positively & coping with society & life again. Only downfall for me is trouble sleeping. Two thumbs up!”

Trintellix (vortioxetine): “I am a 42 yr old mother. I have been depressed all of my life. Never been happy more than a few weeks at a time. I have tired a few different mess but no real change. I would also self medicate with alcohol. At least once a week I would get to drunk I would black out. As you probably figured that caused a lot of problems in itself. I started taken Brentellix 6 moths ago and I have NEVER been so happy in my entire life! I love it! It really changed my life for the better. No more drinking! At all. I’m so happy and my family has also seen the change are are more happy.”

Trintellix (vortioxetine): “1 month in and I’m tolerating this medicine really well. I have Bipolar Disorder, but I’m taking it for depression and anxiety. I’m currently taking 10mg. I have occasional diarrhea and nightmares (may be the Lamotrigne), but that’s it. So far I’m feeling more optimistic, I’m making plans for the future, I want to go out and socialize more often, and feel much more calm. I’ve tried more antidepressants than I can count and have been taking them since 1991. This is by far the best so far.”

Trintellix (vortioxetine): “Tried many drugs over the past 20 years. This is the best yet. No strange feelings in the head, no twitching muscles or fog. Some stomach discomfort which was solved by splitting the l0 milligram tablet in two and taking morning and afternoon. The quality of my life has improved beautifully, and I am so grateful for it.”
