Hi Kenzie, I'm a brintellix newbie myself.  Just started on 10mg a couple weeks ago.  Noted nausea as the most bothersome SE but that's been reduced since starting.  Other than that, some fatigue and mild start up anxiety.  Nothing sersious so far.  Feeling a little blah, but that's typical of my start up experience.

Serotonin syndrome is much rarer than Dr Google would have you believe. Few doctors have ever seen a genuine case. You won't develop it from taking SSRIs alone, not even in massive overdose. Almost all cases result from a SSRI being combined with either MAOI class antidepressants, illicit drugs which cause serotonin hyper secretion such as ecstasy, MDMA, etc, the opioid analogues tramadol, pethidine, fentanil, and methadone, or possibly the tricyclic antidepressants clomipramine imipramine (but not others).

Moreover, combining Brintellix (also Viibryd (vilazodone)) with those drugs is much less likely to cause serious issues as it blocks serotonin 5-HT2A receptors which inhibits the dangerous physical effects of the syndrome. Buspar (buspirone) is another med that blocks the 5-HT2A receptor which is why it is safe to take with SSRIs despite have some serotonergic activity of its own.

It might have contributed to why you need antidepressants, but it won't cause any problem with taking these meds. Drugs like MDMA cause hyper secretion of serotonin to the point neurons use up their energy reserves. This can trigger some cell death, but often it causes cell axons and thus the synapses at the terminals to be pruned which inhibits neurotransmission, and may impact how effective antidepressants are.
