I just started samples of Brintellix and like it so far. Right away I noticed it gave me a little energy and seems to help control my sweet tooth cravings... am I imagining this? ha! I am wondering how long it takes to work on the mood... and also if anyone is taking the generic version - Vortioxetine - and how that is working for you? I called my pharmacy and Brintellix is a little expensive.
