As with most SSRIs, Brintellix takes 6-8 weeks for full efficacy. Many have seen signs of improvement in less time. Please contact your doctor, and explain how you feel.
Side effects in the first couple of weeks is not uncommon. Takes upwards of a month or so to really adjust and feel the effects. If your depression worsens or the side effects become unbearable, contact your doctor.
Yes this is very common as Laurie has already said it's best after the first 2 weeks go by and I don't know when you stopped the Lexapro but some could be withdrawl from it if you went from one to the other.You really should try and keep taking it unless it's just to hard talk to your doctor about it.
