Hi....I was given a 2 week sample of Trintellix to add to my Paxil 60mg. I'm one to do all the research that's possible & also one to read all the reviews available before starting a new medication when it comes to my mental health. I'm very hesitant after reading so many negative reviews with people complaining of severe nausea and stomach pain. I'm absolutely cannot handle vomiting.... I'd rather take a beating than to vomit. However, can I get some advice about this situation? Is it really worth the awful side effects? Should I also ask my doctor to prescribe me some antibiotics nausea medication to take along with the Trintellix? I certainly could use some advice on this. Thanks!

There are quite a few typos in my original message I see. I did not mean to put antibiotics for nausea! I meant to put an antibiotic nausea medication. Lol. Sorry for the typos.....new phone & I'm getting rid of it due to all the auto correct typos.

No worries, typos happen. Rather than antibiotic, I believe you meant antiemetic.

It doesn't hurt to ask about taking one, just in case, especially if you are prone to getting sick with certain medications. I know certain medications cause me nausea, or headaches, so I always warn my doctor ahead of time, and they will usually prescribe something I can take for prevention. However, it is up to your doctor if they want to prescribe something, or not.

However, while those are known as being possible side effects of Trintellix/Brintellix, not everyone experiences them, and as I frequently inform people, most of the reviews you see online will involve complaints, because the large percentage of people that take a medication without any issues have no reason to hunt up a website looking for more information. Just like with restaurant reviews, or any other type of consumer review, they are most commonly left by those that experienced some type of problem. Only a very small amount of people purposefully make an effort to leave a good review

How did you do when you first started the Paxil?

Re: VerFree (# 2)
When I was first prescribed Paxil 20mg..... I literally thought this was an absolute game changer! It made me so happy & content and fixed my depression & social anxiety & anything else that was broken..... I gave Paxil all the credit for fixing it all. I even at one point told my co-workers..... I would stand on the street corner to get my Paxil if that was my only means to getting it. Lol..... I was so innocent & had never taken any type of medication other than Tylenol at that point in my life. That was literally 20 years ago and still to this day I'm taking my Paxil 60mg. though. I've made my answer a little too long, sorry!

I just started Trintellix at 5mg (moved to 10mg today) and have not had any negative side effects yet (no nausea). I was scared by all of the negative reviews as well but have been fine so far.

Re: Kimfuselier73 (# 1)

I have taken Trintellix for about five years. I have had clinical depression for over twenty years. I have been on many drugs. Trintellix has not bothered me, in fact it has helped a great deal. I have had drugs that caused side effects. I would say to try it. If there are unbearable side effects you can talk to your doctor. You cannot know from other people how this will effect you. Please use it for a reasonable time. Many people stop after only a couple weeks or even a couple of days. Sometimes it take weeks or more to feel the full effects of the drug. Also, during that time the side effects may disappear.

The only information I have on Trintellix is third party... a coworker was on Paxil . Her gp added Trintellix. Within 3 days she started having terrible migraines putting her in a fetal position for days. Once the Trintellix was stopped the migraines stopped.

I don’t know about that medication but I wanted to tell you to be careful about what anti nausea medication they give you. Some are dopamine antagonists that can be dangerous, even if you aren’t mixing them with depression medication/antipsychotics. A dopamine antagonist killed my mom.

I have been on Trintellix for close to four years. I do not have the side effects that some have had. I have been on more than fifteen drugs because of mental illness. For me, this drug has made a definite difference. Many times people who have a negative reaction speak up, but a positive one not so much.
