I've been on the 10mg for a little over a month. Dr just upped it to 20mg.
I suffer panic attacks and agoraphobia.
It seems to be helping along w my beta blocker atenolol.
Just wondering if anyone else here has tried it.

Hey amigo

The reason you never got any replies is because few folk including many doctors dont never heard of it.

Its a new class of AD what came out in Denmark in 2018. Its a bit like SSRI but with an extra effect too. Denmark has the highest rate of AD takers per head of population. Yet in surveys they always come top of the happiness index

Generic name is VORTIOXITINE

I was on it for 4 weeks. No side effects. Then the only pharmacy in town what stocked it run out of stock so I had to quit. I had intended to give it two more weeks

So yeah, I believe this is good gear and more folk should know about it.

Yep, I'm on Vortioxetine, also 20mg. I've been on it coming up 4 years. I had a bunch of side effects to begin with, but they passed.
My diagnoses are Chronic Recurrent Depression, EUPD and Anorexia Nervosa.

Apparently docs only use vortioxitine when older SSRI have not worked.

Its dual action is by combining SSRI with Buspirone which is an anti-anxiety but on the weak side.

Hope this helps
