SSRIs ease depression symptoms by increasing the amount of serotonin present in your brain. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that directly affects your mood, appetite, memory, digestion and sexual function. Taking Brintellix helps to ensure your serotonin levels are high enough to properly regulate your mood and treat symptoms of depression and anxiety.
Brintellix is usually taken once a day with or without food, and your doctor may adjust your dosage as necessary to best treat your depression. Your physician may start you on a low dose of vortioxetine to avoid negative side effects, while gradually increasing the dosage to best combat symptoms of depression and anxiety. It is recommended that you take this medication at the same time every day to avoid forgetting a dose.

Vortioxetine rarely causes a condition called serotonin syndrome, especially when used in combination with other antidepressant medications. Seek medical attention immediately if you experience rapid heartbeat, hallucinations, severe nausea or vomiting, extreme dizziness or fever.

Never take any MAO inhibitors while on Brintellix, as this can sometimes cause a fatal reaction. Always report any new or worsening symptoms to your doctor, as your dosage may need to be modified.
