Hi, Robert.

Thanks for the information, Robert. It helps to give me hope. I am on day 10 of treatment. I don't know what to think. I have some background anxiety, which isn't normal for me. Maybe this is how I experience the agitation you describe. Yesterday was not a good day, but not the worst. I will continue at 10 mg/day for two weeks until I see my doctor.

What dosage of vortioxetine did you try? How long did you take it for?
