I was just going to start my own thread on this!

Neither Viibryd nor Brintellix worked for me as monotherapy. Brintellix at least helped me cognitively. So now that I'm back in school, I need help and I added 5mgs of Brintellix 5 days ago at night. My existing mix is 5-10mgs celexa and 150mgs Lamictal.

The first couple of days I could study and work through word problems better, follow complicated reasoning, etc. Now I'm actually starting to feel out of it and irritable, but that doesn't happen until I take my morning meds (celexa and lamictal). Not sure if I should though add an extra 5mgs.

I have a love-hate relationship for 5ht1a agonists. Something in me or my meds has significant cognitive defecits, especially in reading and quantitative reasoning. Buspar made a BIG dent in this for me. However it makes me incredibly irritable after a week or so and ultimately worsens my depression. The others make me less irritable but feel very detached, especially from other people.

Probably some variant of bipolar is involved based on what I am reading. But knowing that doesn't really help.
