Hey guys! I haven't been on here in awhile but have been having my struggles up and down as usual and though it could be helpful to jump back on. I wanted to see if anyone on here is on or has tried Brintellix. It's really new and just came out in September/October last year so I haven't heard of many people on it. I have tried many anti depressants, anti psychotics and a few other things and have had some luck but still haven't gotten it right. My nurse practitioner has a handful of patients on this so far that have been doing really well. Anyone had any luck with it?

PS. I have Generalized Anxiety Disorder, mild depression and a mild mood disorder NOS.

I've just started on it, I've been on Viibryd and it's caused random panic attacks and horrible nightmares. I've been on the Brintellix for almost a week, but I'm still weaning off the Viibryd. I'll post up as I go along.

History: GAD, no real depression, just bad anxiety.

Hello. I am very interested in this new medication, as I have been on Lexapro for over 5 years now, and I can tell that it isn't as effective as it used to be. Please let me know what you think of it. Btw, I tried Viibryd in the past, and it was an absolute nightmare :(

History: Panic Disorder, MDD
