Trintellix and can't sleep

I have been taking 10mg of Trintellix in the mornings for just under 3 weeks and it works well for me, but I can't sleep well and the lack of sleep alone is making me consider stopping this medication. Would it be better to take it at night? Is the sleep issue something that normally goes away? ## If the Trintellix is making you drowsy, it may be a good idea to try taking it at night, like you mentioned. Another issue is, were you already having difficulty sleeping before you started taking the Trintellix? If you were, it may not be the Trintellix. If you weren't, it probably is. You can also maybe lower it to 5 mgs for maybe 3 weeks, then jack it back up to 10 mgs if you feel you have to. That may help your body adjust to it. Good luck. ## Most medications in this class can cau...

aurobindo sertraline

I have been taking two 25mg in Sertraline and now I take one 50mg, I prefer to take two 25mg tablets because taking a 50mg tablet is to much for me to take all at once, but my pharmacist say that they have never given me 25mg in sertraline, but I sure that they have. ## Have you talked to your doctor about writing the prescription as two 25mg tablets, rather than 50mgs? If so, then the pharmacy has to dispense them that way, regardless of what their past records show, so the problem would be eliminated. The FDA lists the typical side effects of Sertraline as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, mood changes, and weight changes. Ref: Medline Plus Sertraline

Brintellix/Trintellix Long term side effects

I have struggled with depression for most of my life, and am always in search of the perfect antidepressant. I work with a psych doctor who is always willing to try new things. 10 months ago I started 5 mg of Brintellix daily, within a week my mood was significantly elevated, I was sleeping better, waking up much earlier and was more motivated to do things in the morning. I went up to 10mg daily However the nausea was dreadful! I pushed through for a couple of weeks, changed to taking the brintellix at night and after a while it subsided. My mood got better and better, I had recently turned 50, and had gained a little weight, so with my new found morning energy I started working out 2times a week with a trainer, and then walking most other mornings! The walking then changed gradually to...

Escitalopram 10mg

What is the proper way to get off Escialopram 10MG after taking it for 3 weeks? I am 81 years old. ## There really shouldn't be any major difficulties if you've only been taking it for 3 weeks and at such a low dosage. Maybe some minor withdrawal symptoms, but that's about it. Learn more Escitalopram details here. Are you experiencing bad side effects from it? You should double check this information, for your own health and safety. ## Thanks. I agree with your statement. Ben ## I have here a small white oval pill printed with ESC 10 on one side, but nothing on the other side. Is this a real Escitalopram? ## Come off of it very! Slowly and carefully. You don't want withdrawal symptoms which is terrible. Good Luck. Speak to your doctor as well.

White scored tablet C40

This pill has the same logo marking as my Metformin on one side but this one is oval, white and has a C | 40 imprinted on the other side. ## This was most likely Citalopram 40 mg manufactured in Canada by Cobalt pharmaceuticals (which was acquired years ago). DIN: 02248051 "Each oval, white, scored, filmed-coated tablet, marked "C|40" on one side and ">" on the other" Source: CO Citalopram - Web Archive 2008-04-18 It appears that a similarly inscribed tablet is also listed in other countries: "Citalopram Sandoz 40 mg - white, oval, biconvex film-coated tablets with a score notch on one side, and embossed C 40."

Escitalopram Oxalate

white, round, 20mg tablets. Depression?? ## just was given cipralex to try for depression and anxiety - been on zoloft, effexor then prestiq - just wondered if anyone has had any good results ## I have been taking Lexam for approx 4 mths and found it to be far better than Zoloft or the mulitude of others I've been put on in the past. As I'm single I can't comment on any issues with Libido, something that it definitely affected by Zoloft, but I can say that it definitely makes it easier to get up each day. I sleep less (unlike when on Endep) and have more energy than before. I've had no issues with weight gain for once. If anything I've lost a little because I'm not gorging myself with comfort foods. I hope it works as well for you. ## Escitalopram is used to trea...
