Viibryd has anyone else had a positive experience?
74 Replies RSS
I am starting to get a little nervous with all the negative feedback in this forum. I was on Cymbalta for a couple of years, but when my doctor increased the dosage I started gaining a lot of weight. He decided to put me on Viibryd. I just finished my trial pack and feel like I have much more energy and can get up earlier in the morning. I feel more focused on things and I feel like my libido is finally working again. The only thing that has happened negatively is the last two days I have been under a lot of stress and have been crying. But I don’t quite know if it is the medication because I may have just had a couple of bad days. I just increased to 40mg today. I am hoping to feel even better. I have not been as hungry since I started the medication so I was surpris...

viibryd 40m, increasing anxiety?
48 Replies RSS
Fellow viibryd folk, I am taking 40mg (been on it for approx 2 mo at this dose). In simply 24 hours I notice a need to take it or I begin to feel very anxious, and afraid. I'm not literally scared, but rather the feeling of having been frieghtened. It results in being emotionally constricted and feeling frozen to move. It feels like it is related to taking the meds, its not my normal self. Any common stories, or comments? ## Yes! Have been taking viibryd for almost 2 years. If I miss one dose, I feel horrible! I have severe panic attacks and immediately feel extremely depressed. It's like an impending doom feeling. I feel CRAZY when I miss a dose.. It's the absolute most horrifying feeling. Im fine as long as I take it every day. I have noticed that it does not work for anxi...

Viibryd is ruining my life
21 Replies RSS
Hey All. I started the starter pack of Viibryd two weeks ago while weaning off of Pristiq. I am on SSRI'S due to obsessive/intrusive thoughts and GAD. The first few days of the 10 mg of Viibryd were okay. I just had some mild diarrhea but no nausea or anything else. By week two, I experienced severe diarrhea, nausea, drowsiness, extreme fatigue, vertigo, and angry irritable behavior. I called my Psychaitrist on Friday and told him that I want off of this stuff! He told me to stop taking it and to call him Monday morning.... two days later I still can barely function at all. This is the worst SSRI that I have ever been on. Now, I am just wondering where to go from here? I seriously didn't even drive my car over the weekend because I felt like I was overmedicated. Anyone else expe...

Switching from Lexapro to Viibryd
14 Replies RSS
Ive been on a comb of lexapro 20mg, and synthriod 50mcg for years now.. Ive been battling depression for awhile now. Ive been on everything under the sun for depression and anxiety. The past month my depression has seem to turn for the worse.. The doc believes the lexapro isnt working and is switching me to Viibryd. I havent started it yet. I was just wondering about it. Ive been on lexapro for so long im scared, but im also scared of my depression and cant live like this much longer. ## When it comes to severe depression, I find it is very essential that the underlying causes of your depression be treated for you to feel true relief without the use of medication. I too suffered from severe depression (for a little over 2 years). Only recently have I been able to overcome the struggle o...

Early Side Effects with Viibryd
23 Replies RSS
I started taking Viibryd three days ago, and have started to see negative side effects. I'm currently taking 10 mg. I get extreme hot flashes, and sweat more excessively. I also noticed I have been experiencing migranes, and tingly sensations throughout my body. My doctor said that this is normal for the first few weeks, but I'm starting to wonder if this has happened to anybody else. Should I just ride it through the next couple of weeks, or should I get off of Viibryd now? ## I have been on Viibryd for for 5 days. The first day I experienced nausea and loose bowels, but that has passed. Now I am getting hot flashes. Also, the heat and sun bother me more. When I woke up this morning, my hand was numb. I'm also on Leumectal. I'm going to keep going on the Viibryd and hop...

has anyone experienced any hearing loss while taking viibryd
6 Replies RSS
I've been taking Viibryd for about 2 months. All of a sudden I have hearing loss in my right ear. My doctor has me on a steriod treatment, thinking it maybe from nerve damage. I am just wondering if maybe it is from the viibryd and wanted to know if anyone else had any problems hearing. ## Hello, Cindy! How are you? Sorry about the hearing loss. I've searched various user based side effects reports, as well as the detailed clinical side effects and there has been no mention of hearing loss being associated with Viibryd. Additionally, I've not seen it posted on here from users, either. Learn more Viibryd details here. It may have caused it in you, because there's really no way to know how any given medication will affect any given person that tries it. Have you consulted ...

Help! Coming off of Viibryd
126 Replies RSS
I was wondering if any of you out there have come off of an SSRI and had severe panic attacks that lasted a month or longer. I am in such distress. I wasn't taking any sort of medication a few years ago and was fine. I almost went through a break-up last summer, got super depressed and my primary care physician started me on Viibryd. At first, it worked great, I felt happy and alive and things smoothed over with the boyfriend. Once he bumped me up to 40 mg however this past November I started to notice I was having panic attacks every now and then. I decided I wanted to get off of it and he cut me down to 20mg for a week, then 10 mg for a week and then nothing. The more I got off of Viibryd, th more panic attacks I would have. I would especially get them while driving. I would get a...

4 Replies RSS
I starting taking viibryd after having no luck on lexapro, paxil, celexa, effexor, toprol, wellbutrin etc etc. Started on 10mg starter pack and went up to 40 fairly quickly. Family noticed that I was much more agitated and crying all the time...also have frequent suicidal thoughts...which aren't typical. I told both the therapist and psyc about this.

Vibryd users please respond

Please let me know if you use vibryd how long it took to work and what your dose is please anyone ## Is anyone out there on viibryd please respond if you are does it work if so how long did it take ## Hi Theresa, I've never taken this medication before, but I did want to post some additional information that may be of help. Viibryd contains the active ingredient Vilazodone; which is an antidepressant used for major depressive disorders. Apparently it can take up to 8 weeks to for some people to notice vast signs of improvement, but I've heard that this time-frame may actually be longer with other similar medications. I also wanted to let you know that there's actually another Viibryd discussion thread here on this same topic if you're looking for more immediate feedback ...

Going to start it tomorrow. Anyone else taking it and how do you like it? Thanks, ls ## Started taking it on 07-13. Coming off of Effexor and Lexapro. ## Thanks, and keep me updated on how you feel. I take Welbutrin and am adding this med. Used to take Lexapro with the Welbutrin, but it just make me feel like nothing, so I got off it. Hopefull, and from what I have read, this is a lot better!! ## Will do! Am very hopeful as well. Lot of anxiety during the transition, but I think that's the Effexor getting out of my system. ## I have never taken it, but can provide a little information about it. It contains the active ingredient Vilazodone and it is approved for the treatment of major depressive disorder. Unlike similar medications, it has been shown to help in as little as one week,...

Has anyone else experienced sleep paralysis accompanied by hallucinations since starting viibryd? I have been on the medicine for about 4 months now and for the last 2 1/2 months have had several very scary episodes of sleep paralysis... I have never been on a anti-depressant before and never experienced sleep paralysis until i started this medicine. I am a 23 year old female and i take no other meds except a daily multi-vitamin. Ive noticed that if i accidentally miss a viibryd pill i have sleep paralysis... but have also had it on occasions of not missing a pill. It occurs about once a week... its to the point where i dread going to sleep at night in fear of sleep paralysis, but the hallucinations that come along with it are what I dread the most. Has anyone else had a similar experie...

Total personality change!
1 Reply RSS
My husband has been on Viibryd for almost a year, he has a extraordinary stress level for his job and now works 7 days a wk, 12-14 hr days, the problem is, he is barely recognizable of the Old Husbands personality. Total disconnect from me, only concentrating on work, he is beyond narcissistic, such a chip on his shoulder. Coincidence or has anyone else had or been told they see these same mood swings/personality changes? Thank you! ## Hello, Marilyn! How are you doing? Has there been any change with your husband? Some of these medications can cause that, in some people that take them, medical science has never found any way to explain it, but they do sometimes cause the opposite of the desired effects, according to the FDA and the NIH. In such cases, it is usually best to inform the pe...
