viibryd concentration anxiety depression PTSD zoloft side effects mood
2 Replies RSS
My depression symptoms were anxiety and depression stemming from lack of self-esteem and felling helpless/hopeless after being in a bad work environment with my boss and after losing some work and property that I created in a hurricane. I had feelings of grief and depression and in lack of motivation. I had PTSD, with anxiety but I also just felt completely demotivated. I had difficulty concentrating. I would feel overwhelmed and also de-motivated. I would be agitated and on-edge while at the same time I just wanted to retreat and stop trying to fix my situation. In 2013, I decide to mood stabilizing medicine. My doctor started me on Zolft. I took it for six weeks or seven weeks. However, on the Zoloft I felt dull and I had a lack of libido. Then, I switched to Viibryd. Viibryd is worki...

viibryd for anxiety concerns
2 Replies RSS
I have been on seroquel and buspar for about 4 years and my doc just added viibryd for the anxiety. Does anyone else take this combination and does it seem to work? My anxiety has gotten worse lately so he added this med. I started today with the 10 mg and supposed to do that for a week then 20 for a week and then the dose I'm supposed to stay on at 40mg. Thoughts anyone?? ## Hello, Bewinter! How are you? Actually, the Buspar and Viibryd shouldn't be combined. There is a high risk of developing serotonin syndrome, if you take both of them, which could be life threatening. I'd suggest double checking with your doctor, before taking them both. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Viibryd at 20 mg completely destroyed my anxiety! A miracle drug for me.

viibryd for anxiety
3 Replies RSS
Im now on my 6th day of the 40mg of viibryd. Im using the starter pack like everyone else. I'm on viibryd for OCD so since starting the 40mg I have noticed a decrease in obsessive thoughts. At first the 10 mg and 20mg made my obsessive thoughts worse but now at the therapeutic dose I can feel like I'm slowly getting better. Only side effects I've gotten is increased bowel movements, extremely vivid dreams and some lethargy which is good if your OCD and your always obsessing. I feel confident that this medicine will work and I might even ask to go up to 60mg just so my OCD can be manageable. ## hi, Steve! I'm very glad that the Viibryd is working for you and you also have a fantastic attitude! It's great of you to post about your positive experience, far too many time...

viibryd 40m, increasing anxiety?
37 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...

Does Viibyrd cause dead intestines
4 Replies RSS
My husband became sepsis with sections of dead intestines, after using Viibyrd for 1 month. He died 9 days later. ## Hello, Jeanette! How are you? I am so very sorry for your loss. That's horrible! The FDA does list that this mediation can cause gastroenteritis, which is a type of intestinal infection, but it's usually self-limiting and goes away within a few weeks. Was he experiencing severe diarrhea at any point? Sepsis usually denotes a bacterial infection that has run rampant throughout the body. Did the doctors have any idea of what caused it? ## I have no words. My thoughts and prayers to you. I will immediately stop viibryd 20mg which I have taken 16 days with unimaginable stomach upset. ## I am okay, thank you. My husband remained rather subdued during the month and trie...

viibryd and hydrocodone
2 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...

Help! Coming off of Viibryd
119 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...

Viibryd Withdrawal -- how i felt
21 Replies RSS
Stopping Viibryd: From 40mg I tapered down to 7 days of 20mg followed by 7 days of 10mg. The biggest side effect I felt was mostly irritability and anxiety. I was able to go into work but tried to keep to myself. I felt sick. Didn't want to socialize. When I finally stopped the med completely it was pretty bad. I'm on day 6 now. Have been unable to work, drive or leave my house ... for fear of ending up in jail or hospital from flipping out. I feel a constant anger and want to break things, and have yelled at the top of my lungs to two people on the phone. I feel disoriented, dizzy, itchy, and confused (itchiness was actually nothing new for me). I'm confined to my house until further notice. Very unpleasant! ## Hi gistell, Sorry to hear about your situation with Viibryd. Th...
