How Vortioxetine Works
Vortioxetine is used for treatment of depression (feeling sad, restless, irritable, a change in appetite or weight, difficulty concentrating or sleeping, feeling tired, headaches, unexplained aches and pains) in adults. Vortioxetine belongs to a group of medicines called antidepressants. Depression is thought to be caused by an imbalance of certain chemicals that occur naturally in the brain. Vortioxetine works to correct the imbalance in one of these chemicals (serotonin). This may help ease emotional and physical symptoms of depression. Trintellix is not for use in children and adolescents under 18 years of age.
