Not sure why. Doc has rx-ed Vortioxetine now and removed Fluoxetine. I complained of depression. I also read somehwere vortioxetine is not just an antidepressant but is also an antipsychotic.

Not sure why the change is there but ok I can feel slightly better now.

it's not an antipsychotic. it doesn't antagonize dopamine at all. it's a serotonin reputake inhibitor and modulator.

I read that here actually was skeptical too but appaently it says here its an AP

Vortioxetine (Trintellix™, Brintellix™) is a prescription antipsychotic and antidepressant medication used to treat major depressive disorder in adults. Vortioxetine targets the neurotransmitter serotonin, which can affect mood, memory, and other cognitive functions [1]. It appears to improve multiple aspects of cognitive function in people with depression, though evidence for its effects in healthy adults is currently lacking. Short-term studies have reported good safety profiles in people with depression, though some drug interactions are known.

This part of the source you cite does not give it much credence. It basically says, “we think it might do this, but there’s actually no evidence to prove it.” That would classify it, then, as far as I can see, as wishful thinking.

What is the source for this?......Vortioxetine is not an AP.

Not sure it showed up as one of those questions that Google suggests

It navigates to this site

https://www.alzdiscovery.org/cognitive-vitality/ratings/vortioxetine

Hmm...not familiar with that site....

According to drugs.com, it is classfied as a "miscellaneous antidepressant".

Quote from drugs.com:

  • "Trintellix is classified as a miscellaneous antidepressant, although some classify it as an SSRI (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor) and a serotonin receptor modulator."
