"Viibryd is a dual-acting potent and selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor and a 5-HT1A receptor partial agonist approved for the treatment of major depressive disorder.
Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, which enhance the availability of synaptic 5-HT, are approved as safe and effective treatments for depression and 5-HT1A receptor partial agonists have been shown to be effective for mood disorders including depression and anxiety. "
Sorry I'm not sure if it works quicker than other antidepressants - but after reading about it would be worth trying.
