- Age: Typically, the younger you are, the more efficient your body functions are. The more efficient your body functions, the faster Brintellix will be removed from your system.
- Body height/weight/fat: Your specific prescribed vortioxetine dosage corresponds to your body height, weight and fat. Usually, larger people will be given a higher dosage of Brintellix. The higher the dose of vortioxetine you have been taking, the longer Brintellix will take to be removed from your system.
- Genetics: Genes predispose people to different metabolic functions, which is a key factor in how your body processed medications like vortioxetine. For this reason, your genetic makeup comes into play when estimating how long Brintellix will remain in your system.
- Kidney and liver functions: The liver and kidneys eliminate everything you ingest, and Brintellix is no exception. If your liver or kidneys are damaged, it will most likely take longer for your body to remove the vortioxetine from your system.
- Metabolism: Your metabolism determines how quickly you process foods, liquids and medications such as Brintellix. If your metabolism is slow, it will take longer for your body to process and eliminate vortioxetine from its system than someone with a fast metabolism.
- Usage frequency: The longer you have been taking Brintellix, the longer it will remain in your system. For example, it will take longer for someone who taken vortioxetine for several years to remove Brintellix from the body than someone who has only been taking vortioxetine for a few months.
- Urine: Brintellix can be detected in urine within 12 to 16 days of its use.
- Hair: Like many other medications, vortioxetine can be detected in hair follicles for a longer duration than other tests. Usually, Brintellix can be detected in hair within 90 days of its use.
- Blood: Brintellix can be detected in a blood test up to 16 days after taking it. Depending on your age and metabolism, it may be undetectable after 13 days.
