Thanks Chris

Can someone do me a big favor and go ask a pharmacist if not a psychiatrist about my new AD Vortioxetine.

I was on 10 mg for 2 weeks then increased to 15mg for this past week. Today my anxiety depression and suicidal thoughts were atrocious

Is this side effects which will go away if I persist? Should I increase decrease amount or even stop? I know this damn stuff can take 6 weeks but I feel awful

Hi Isap

I will speak to a pharmacist almost definitely tomorrow (Thursday) . Waiting for meds to kick in is awful at the best of times but not having access to doctors etc makes it a great deal worse.

I'm sorry things are so bad just now

God bless

Hi Isap

It will be tomorrow before I can find out. Yesterday the pharmacist where I live said she couldn't deal with it cos it's not for me. I've just been to boots. They are very busy and told me to come back tomorrow. I am in town early so will go then.

Sorry it's taking this long

God bless

Hi Debs

Thanks for trying.

I can't believe the attitude of the first pharmacist I find that totally disgusting behaviour

Specifically I need to know how soon I can start on full dose of 20gm it's been 3 weeks now and am on 1
5mg. Been feeling terrible more than usual

You could also seek confirmation that heightened anxiety and suicidal thoughts are side effects

Thanks God bless

Hi Isap

I spoke to a very nice pharmacist

She said it was impossible to advise on dose without knowing more about your depression. Said a doctor might choose to increase or take you off drug.

Yes it is possible to get these side effects

She was sorry she couldn't be more definite but ideally. a dr should see you and advise. Impossible I know

God bless

HI Debs

Thanks for your help. The confirmation of side effects was more important than dosage. It's a question of when not if I raise to 20mg and I'll do that tomorrow. I'm not going to stop taking the stuff now after suffering so much more these past 3 weeks

God bless
