What causes dizziness and lack of motivation post Brintellex withdrawal?
Withdrawal symptoms of Brintellix usually last for a couple of weeks
Hello thanks for asking from HCM for your health related queries
I can understand your concern. Brintellix is Vortioxetine and the drug belongs serotonergic group of antidepressants. In most cases if the drug is stopped abruptly after continuous use then withdrawal symptoms can occur. The symptoms like dizziness, dopey feeling, lack of motivation etc are most likely due to withdrawal. Seroquel and Lorazepam will help in good sleep and in my opinion you should continue to take them as per your prescribed doses. In most cases such symptoms decrease in about a couple of weeks. So no need to worry as these symptoms will reduce in severity.
You are already taking Vitamins and this will help in restless legs. Continue to take supplements containing B12, E and C. These vitamins are useful in a number of situations. Also start taking Omega-3-Fatty Acids. These supplements will not only potentiate the actions of drugs but will help in good sleep and other functions. Please visit your doctor if your symptoms persist or become worse.
Thanks, I hope this helps you. Please dont hesitate to ask again for more doubts.
