viibryd hair loss
18 Replies RSS
After discontinuing Viibryd, has anyone noticed their hair NOT becoming thick again? I've been on 60 mg for about 8 months. My hair is now falling out by the handfuls.. I have an appointment to see my dr. next week but I'm terrified my hair won't grow back! Not to sound self centered or shallow but I adore my hair! Had I of known this was a side effect I'd never agreed to try this medication. I'm terrified, as I've already stated, but I am also angry that this information isn't given by drug reps who push these meds! I pay 277$ a month for this RX & now have to worry about withdrawals, my hair possibly not growing back & adjusting to a new medication. Any replies are welcome & will be appreciated! ## Hello, Amanda! How are you? I'm very sorry ...

Early Side Effects with Viibryd
25 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...

I have just started taking Viibryd.

I'm suffering from depression/anxiety/bipolar disorders. Today, as of 6th of October, I have taken my 6th pill of 10mg of Viibryd. Just after my second pill I started experimenting dizziness and nausea. I've been having troubled sleeping, and as soon as I wake up everything seems to be spinning around me. The first thing I do in the morning is running to the fridge just to grab something to eat, otherwise I'm extremely nauseous and have an upset stomach. I've been having daharrea along with painful lower part of my abdominals for the last 4 days. I'm feeling very depressed, sad, heavy, and lethargic without an ability of completing simple daily tasks. I have just started feeling shooting pains first in my feet, then legs, and now a little bit in my chest. Anxiety is ...

20mg vs 40 mg of Viibryd
132 Replies RSS
I have been on Viibryd since Nov 1 2011. I began with the started pack (10mg/7 days , 20mg 7days then 40 mg). After being on it for 2 days my anxiety was TERRIBLE on the 40mg. I am now on 20mg and feeling pretty damn good...better than I have in years. Psychiatrist has agreed to keep me on 20mg and we will re-evaluate later. My question is: are any of you on 20mg and staying there? If so, what are the pros and cons? How are you feeling...does it feel like that dose is enough? ## The dose that works well can vary from person to person and should be individualized, just as your doctor has agreed to do. It also means you will have another dose to go up to later, if/when your body builds up a tolerance to this one. We have a couple of active threads involving people that are using Viibryd, ...

Viibryd and Remeron
2 Replies RSS
Taking viibryd and remeron. The remeron is at night though to help with sleep.....not working as of yet. Waking up in the middle of the night soaking wet in sweat. Viibryd is 20mg in the morning. Any ideas? Tired of waking up so early and freezing. Also, my legs seem almost wobbly unless I continuously eat throughout the day. Please help, all advice is welcome. I started these 2 meds coming off of ambien, wellbutrin, cymbalta and clonazepam. ## How long has it been since you stopped the other medications? It is possible that some of your symptoms are being caused by withdrawal effects. The FDA warns that you may also experience nausea, dizziness, headache, fever, chills, rebound depression, and anxiety. ## Ok thank you, feeling a lot better now. The last to go and is decreasing to almos...

Be VERY cautious mixing alcohol with Viibryd!!
105 Replies RSS
This is a warning to you all... A little bit about me first: I'm 6'3" and only 130 pounds. Naturally I am very susceptible to side effects of any drug. I also didn't have my first taste of alcohol until October 2011, which is when I turned 23. Throughout November 2011 I took Cymbalta. I also drank occasionally, but not often and not much. Cymbalta gave me a lot side effects such as an upset stomach, dizzyness, inability to sleep, etc. About mid-December I switched to Prozac, and took it through February. Throughout this time I drank a lot. Very often, and sometimes I'd get incredibly drunk, but I didn't have any bad experiences with mixing Prozac and alcohol. At the beginning of March 2012 I started taking Viibryd because Prozac wasn't giving me the results I...

viibryd 40m, increasing anxiety?
50 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 and hydrocodone
3 Replies RSS
I have been on viibryd for a week and have been having awful headaches. I am wondering if it is safe to take a leftover hydrocone from a dental procedure. ## Hello, Mary! How are you? I'm sorry about the headaches. I didn't find any problems or interactions listed between these medications, but it's always best to double check with your doctor to be sure. Viibryd has been known to cause migraines, in some people that take it, according to the FDA. You may also experience nausea, dry mouth, weight changes, palpitations, decreased libido and night sweats. However, they should taper off, after a few weeks, when your body gets used to the medication. If not, you should speak to your doctor as it may not be the right medication for you. The FDA classifies Hydrocodone/Acetaminophe...
