Mary Says:


i have been on 5mg of Brintellix for a week for anxiety and depression. My doctor wants me to go up to 10mg. She said the drug should also help me with focus. I still feel anxious and a little dull witted. I have burned food on the stove twice which is a rarity for me. It mentions in the warnings not to drive a car until I know the full effect of the Brintellix. Now, how realistic is that? Now I am nervous about driving my grandkids. So much for helping my anxiety. I am now nervous about going up to 10mg. I know this drug probably will not take effect for a few weeks but I am not sure if I should continue.

Hello, Mary! How are you?

Unfortunately, you'll get that same warning with almost all medications, due to the fact that there's a risk of them making you dizzy and drowsy.

The side effects should eventually go away, once you're on a steady dose for 4 to 5 weeks and your body gets used to it, it's just in the interim that you need to be careful.

The FDA lists other typical side effects as possibly including nausea, headache, dry mouth and weight changes.

Have you discussed your concerns with your prescriber?
