Back pain with Viibyrd
I started Viibryd a week ago and have been experiencing severe back pain and my feet are tender. Has anyone experienced this? Also, Im experiencing dizziness, fullness in my ears and agitation.

Im ready to resume my fitness routine. Thanks for your responses.

Viibryd
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 causing hair loss (alopecia)
Correlation is not causation, as we all know, but my hair has thinned dramatically in the year or more I've been taking Viibryd. I'm at that age (45) but never had an issue before nor does male pattern baldness run in my family. I never found hair falling out, just seems like every hair I do have has gotten thinner. I assume I must have lost some hair too, but none in the sink or pillow. Not sure where it went, but it's going somewhere! I'm about to cross-taper to something else, it'll be interesting to see if it comes back. I'll try to remember to come back and let you know... ## Hello, Dave! How are you? This has actually been reported by a lot of people that take it, but it seems many have experienced a reversal upon discontinuing it. Is this the only medicati...

Switching from Lexapro to Viibryd
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...

Help! Coming off of Viibryd
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...

New To Viibryd, Primarily for Anxiety, 1st time on this type of Med
Have been on Viibryd for almost a month. Dr. having me top out at 20mg for now, so cutting 40mg in half. Initial stomach bowel problems solved by taking in the morning with toast/banana or steel cut oatmeal. My problem is that my anxiety level has shot a ton higher recently. Normal risks/worries with work becoming obsession like. I went on this drug b/c of one particular event at work that I was obsessing over. Now I am waking up at 4am, not able to fall back asleep, with thoughts running through multiple work related problems. Has anyone's Dr. kept them at 10mg ? or switched them from 20mg to 10mg and stayed there longer term ? Trying to figure out if 10mg is right for me or if that's not realistic and Viibryd is just not the right drug for my anxiety. See my Doc this week. ## ...

Viibryd And Memory Loss
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 40m, increasing anxiety?
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 users help
Is there anyone out there who didnt see any improvement in their symptoms of depression and anxiety until they reached 40 Mgs please let me know I'm on 20 for over two no improvement please let me know ## Have been on it for 9 days, starting with the 10 mg. NO improvement. Supposed to be fast acting. I am weaning off starting tomorrow after taking 1st 20 mg yesterday morning and waking up at 3 am to find I had had terrible diarrhea in my pajamas! I would rather be depressed and anxious than have to deal with that or any of the other multitudes of horrible side effects I have read about. ## I have been on Viibryd since Novemeber. It took a full 2 months for my depression episodes to subside. I still have anxiety and will address that next week at my appointment. ## Terri, Are you hav...
