However it happens maybe once a week or once every otherweek so should i just stay on 20 mg i decided to bring it down and go on prozac but i want to make sure i am making the rght dec w doctor of course. I have been on cymbalta 2 years and ristiq 2 years prior and they were terrible to get off i notice that if i am 2 hours late for viibryd i have a night of hell with the nightmares. Does anyone else? Is viibryd going to be a nightmare to get off im very nervous. ;/ ## Wow! I also had the worst dreams I have ever had last night. It was appalling. I am turning into a real shr...

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... I am on my I think 5th or 6th day...so far doing fine...a little dizzy at first..anyway...I typed all that in the other thread...lol.. click here to view the other thread ## Unfortunately, sin...

20mg vs 40 mg of Viibryd
84 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, ...

Started Viibryd-feeling strange
1 Reply RSS
I have been switching from an SNRI (nefazadone) to Viibryd and also take Wellbutrin. Today I got to the point in the taper where I took Viibryd (20mg) + my Wellbutrin w/o my old medicine. I have this strange sort of anxious feeling...almost like restlessness but I don't feel like I have to move... its like energy sitting on me, or running through my extremities... As I type this I know it sounds freaky weird but I can't exactly describe this feeling. It's an anxious sort of feeling, like there is something I should be doing but forgot, but I am having fear; mood is sort of flat or spaced out. Has anyone experienced anything like this? ## Hello, Shanni! How are you? I'm not on the same medications, but yes, I have experienced this with the one I'm taking. I'm on P...

Sleep paralysis w/ hallucinations
228 Replies RSS
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...

Viibryd And Memory Loss
10 Replies RSS
I am on 40 mg of viibryd. I am experiencing extreme memory loss. If i switch to another antidepressiant will the memory come back ## If it was caused by the Viibryd, then yes, it may come back if you stop taking it and try something else. Learn more Viibryd details here. I've suffered something similar from medications in the past and my memory has always returned to normal, after I stopped taking them....of course I'll never try them again, because that's quite an uneasy occurrence to deal with. I'd suggest talking to your doctor as soon as you can, that way they can determine if it's due to the medication and help you decide the appropriate course of action. Have you tried any other antidepressants? ## I also have completely lost my memory of Viibryd. I am forgetti...

Viibryd has anyone else had a positive experience?
65 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 Weight Gain
23 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 ...

antidepressant users please respond
8 Replies RSS
If an antidepressant is going to work do you feel better just one day or is it gradual relief please let me know ## I believe it's a little of both. You do feel pretty good right away (usually after the first 24 hrs), and if you are on the RIGHT med that helps you. And it also gradually helps by increasing your mood the more you continue to take it. Until you feel "normal" for your standards. Hope it helps. And good luck to you. ## Thank you for the response, Amy! Much appreciated! Hello, Theresa! How are you doing? Some information that I'd like to add that many people aren't aware of, when it comes to psychiatrically active medications, is that sometimes they can also make things worse, before they get better. When first starting a new one, or increasing the dosage...

Viibryd and back to Zoloft
Post a Reply
My doctor just took me off viibryd (and 1 mg of Abilify) and put me back on Zoloft (which I had been on for years prior). I gained 20 pounds and was still really depressed and anxious on the viibryd/Abilify. My concern is that he didn't wean me off the viibryd. It's only been 2 days and I am so itchy!! I want to itch my face off and I am so irritable too.. Super b****y and agitated with everything and everyone. Has anyone quit viibryd cold turkey and gone to Zoloft?
