how long does it take viibryd to get out of your system
7 Replies RSS
I want to have a few drinks this weekend and I was wondering how many days I should be off. ## Hello, Viiby! How are you? It would really be best to stay on your medication and forgo the alcohol. It tends to exacerbate the side effects, so it could make you more dizzy, drowsy and nauseous than usual. Even if you stop taking it, you're likely going to experience some withdrawal effects, which will probably also be worsened by the alcohol. If your doctor approves of your imbibing, then please make sure that you aren't driving. Viibryd has a half-life of 24 to 25 hours and it takes 5 to 6 half-lives to be fully processed out of your body, so you'd be looking at needing a break of at least 5 to 6 days, but as I said, that doesn't do away with the possible withdrawal effects....

Can Viibryd damage stomach or GI tract?
1 Reply RSS
My psychiatrist prescribed Viibryd today, and I took my first dose with a meal a few hours ago. He said that Viibryd can cause stomach pain, but the pain will go away. I had gastritis and colitis in the past a few times. I have some stomach pain or cramps now. Could Viibryd damage my stomach or GI tract? ## Yes, there is a chance that it might, that is a risk with most medications, according to NIH studies. You may also experience dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and weight changes. Do you take any other medications? Have you tried anything to alleviate the stomach issues? What medications have you taken for the gastritis?

Anyone had any experience with Viibryd yet? My doc just gave it to me today. Just wondering... ## I just started Viibryd yesterday (7/19/11) as well. I haven't been able to find any consumer reviews for this medication yet so I guess I'll keep looking... Good luck to you! ## Thanks for posting. I'll keep digging around as well. If I find anything, I'll let you know. ## Below is one website that has been recommended...which I can't get to from work. But, there are several places where people are talking about it. There is another thread here that I started a few days ago also...

20mg vs 40 mg of Viibryd
96 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 has anyone else had a positive experience?
78 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...

Be VERY cautious mixing alcohol with Viibryd!!
102 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 Weight Gain
30 Replies RSS
I originally got on the web today to research how to loose weight gained from medication. I have been on Viibryd for 6 months for Major Depressive disorder. I currently take 40 mg. It should be noted taking Viibryd has changed me from a size 0 to size 6. 20lbs. My appetite at times especially in the evening is RAVENOUS. I am embarrassed by how much I can eat and not be full. I have been nonchalant about a few pounds here and there but it devestated me yesterday when i caught a glimpse of CELLULITE on my backside. Nothing else has changed in my medicines or routine. I have always been slim. I have compassion for any who have been trying to figure out if Viibryd is causing their body to change physically. I also will comment on other side effects in another post. My memory is compromised ...

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,...

viibryd hair loss
13 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 ...
