I'm going to cut and paste a few other posts as they got to the way I was feeling at the time:

"I'm switching off Brintellix to Viibryd right now. We were trying to get the Buspar effect in me without the nasty irritability from Buspar metabolites.

Brintellix was great for my sex drive and anxiety/concentration/cognition. TERRIBLE for my mood and motivation. It seemed to "turn down" most of my interests and drives, and "turn up" my metacognition, or the voice this is always watching, narrating, and judging what I do. It was kind of creepy.

My doc said Viibryd has less post-synaptic action so that weird boxed-in feeling should go away.

So I'm tapering off the Brintellix as I'm adding Viibryd, which I have been doing for the past five days. My moods are great already and that boxed in feeling is gone, BUT....

I am sleepy as hell all day long, and the loss in cognitive skill is stark. Can't really read or fill out paperwork. Ready to abort I think."

And this is from before I started the mix..."By adding just 5mgs of Celexa back to the mix I am finding a returned energy to do things and interact with people. I'm actually smiling. I've lowered Brint. by 5mgs in the morning. Vyvanse as needed.

My doctor wants to switch me to Viibryd, thinking it has fewer post-synaptic actions that could be blanding me out and feeling isolated and uninterested around people.

Although a lot of people would term this mix as "voodoo," I'm hesitant to switch completely over to the Viibryd."
