Brintellix made me horribly ill! Severe nausea, acid reflux..I couldn't lie down flat for days due to the stomach upset. Pay attention to this side effect, definitely Brintellix is not for me!

Comment:
I have been on many different antidepressants over the last few years. This is the only one that has helped. I feel great. I have energy. I found it works best to take at night. I've had no side effects. It's does cost more but to me it's worth it.
