Kellie: lost


Recommended Posts



I started meds originally for what I thought was a hormone problem. After 5 years on lexapro, I wanted to try something else as I experienced side effects. I tried Brintellix for 2 months and felt awful most of the time. My doctor gave me a script for Pristiq but I just don’t want to be on drugs anymore. So I’m 1.5 weeks cold turkey from brintellix and feeling like hell. I didn’t have a plan so didn’t taper. If I was to restart tapering, would I do it from brintellix? The world is dark and I have enough energy to feed my kids and that’s all.

Welcome, Kellie.


What are your current symptoms? How's your sleep?


After you changed from Lexapro to Brintellix, how did you not feel well?
