This is my first post on this forum. I'm a late 50's man with anxiety issues that keep getting worse since I was first diagnosed 15 years ago. I've tried many forms of treatment but none have been effective. I've tried a few different antidepressants in the past, but they always end up making me very hyper/nervous/twitchy. I was finally referred to a psychiatrist a couple of weeks ago and he prescribed Trintellix at 5mg/day. I took this dosage for 8 days. Last night, I woke up sweating profusely and my heart beating really fast. When I got out of bed my muscles were stiff and sore, I was also feeling disoriented. I'm a diabetic, so my fist thought was low blood sugar. When I checked, my sugar level was fine. The symptoms lasted most of the night and I'm still feeling out of sorts today. Anyone else have these types of side effects from Trintellix?
