Trintellix, which I take, may be an SSNRI.
Yes about the buildup, especially since most psych meds have to ramp up. Due to the movers hiding the box with my pill bottles, I was off lamotrigine for about a month. Had to ramp up from 25mg to my current high level, with two weeks each for 25, 50, & 100. After that, just add anr 100 a week until I reached the correct level.
