how long does it take viibryd to get out of your system
5 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....

Viibryd Withdrawal -- how i felt
27 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...

Viibryd Weight Gain
29 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 ...

Sleep paralysis w/ hallucinations
251 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 40m, increasing anxiety?
49 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...

peach rectangular pill with 20 on one half
1 Reply RSS
I found half a pill in my sons wallet. It has the number 20 on it and it's a peach color kind of oval or rectangular. ## Hi Missy, I found a couple different pills that share a similar description (though these are full/complete pills): 1. Viibryd (20mg) - An oval/elliptical shaped light orangish colored pill with 20 engraved on one side and blank on the other - Made by Forest Pharmaceuticals. Viibryd is an antidepressant. 2. Omeprazole (20mg) - A rectangular/oblong shapred brownish/orange colored pill with 20 embedded on one side and blank on the other - Made by Major Pharmaceuticals. This one has National Drug Code of 00904-5834 and is used for treating symptoms associated with GERD. Do either of these sound like a potential suspect based on any conversations with your son? Unfort...

Viibryd Side Effects and Safety Concerns
1 Reply RSS
I am 46 and have been taking SSRIs for around 20 years. Tried at least 4-5 of them. I am so sick of all the side effects. You get rid of one aspect of a mental problem and find out the med causes a new problem of its own. I went on Effexor for awhile and didn't like it cognitively, so I am looking for something else. I guess the major things I'm looking to get away from are sexual side effects and weight gain and sleepiness. I tried Zoloft, and instantly couldn't climax. Got off it in 2 weeks. I saw Viibryd is one of the SSRIs with the least sexual side effects, so thought I'd go for it. I think it might be causing dry mouth. I just got a cold and it's been hell finding moisture to breathe. I woke up so dry and breathing through my mouth that I called an advice nurse...

Viibryd and Wellbutrin
1 Reply RSS
I was on Viibryd for almost a year and felt like it wasn't working anymore so my dr switched me to Wellbutrin. How long before I know if it's right for me? It's been 4 days and I feel horrible. ## At this time, you are most likely experiencing withdrawal effects from the Viibryd, as well as side effects from starting the Wellbutrin, which the NIH lists as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, anxiety, insomnia, diarrhea, and dry mouth. It usually takes about 4 to 5 weeks for your body to adjust, so things settle down and you discover how much the new medication will help you. Has there been any change?
