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 Withdrawal -- how i felt
18 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...

Switched from Paxil to viibryd
2 Replies RSS
i have suffered from panic attacks for about 4 years now. Dr gave me Ativan to take when I felt one coming on. Earlier this year the Ativan seemed to quit working and the attacks were happening daily. Dr started me on Paxil 4 months ago. It has really helped with my attacks but I gained 30 lbs on it. Friday I was started on a viibryd starter pack. Today is my second day with it and I can already feel the attacks coming back under the surface. Is this normal? ## Hello, Jon! How are you? Yes, that can be normal. Usually, you'll experience withdrawal effects from stopping the one medication, accompanied with side effects of starting the new one. The FDA lists other typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth. If it gets too severe, you should co...

viibryd and crying

I was on zoloft 150MG I have been on it for 10 years didn't seem to be working as well so switched to celexa it made things worse. So then put on viibryd been on it almost 6 wks I am having more anxiety and very emotional cry a lot over little things does this get better ## Hello, Tammy! How are you? IF it's been 6 weeks, then this one likely isn't working for you, either. Typically, it should reach its full therapeutic effect in your body between 4 to 6 weeks and that's when you should start to see improvement. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, anxiety, dry mouth and weight changes. Have you contacted your doctor? You'll likely need to switch to another medication.

Started Viibryd-feeling strange
2 Replies 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...

viibryd withdrawal symptoms/life
6 Replies RSS
I've been on Viibryd for about 2 years now, I think? I started on 10mg, then went up to 20, then 40. At first the side affects were bad--EXTREME dizziness, mood swings, some nausea...but all around no worse than Lexapro side affects...maybe even fewer side affects than with Lexapro. (I was told Viibryd was the "newer bumped up version" of Lex) Anyhow--I am now tapering down to get off the Viibryd as I feel it's not working for me. I just feel stagnant, no better, no worse. Maybe worse? I'm not sure and can't tell until I'm off it I guess. I knew the withdrawal would not be fun. I've been tapered by my Dr. from 40mg for two weeks, to 20mg for two weeks, and now 10mg for two weeks. I am on day 3 of 10 mg, and last night i was a moody/crying/depressive/exhau...

Viibryd titration increase 5mg to start?
1 Reply RSS
I'm new to this forum. I have had anxiety and panic attacks for almost 40 years but fought it fairly well until Depression crept in about 10 years ago. Like most here, I've tried just about every antidepressant known but they either did nothing or the anxiety got out of control. My PCP suggested Viibryd as it works slightly different than other SSRIs. I started the sample pack at 10mg per day for one week, then got part way through week 2 but it made me sleep long hours and my anxiety went haywire. I stopped it and started preparing for TMS. Funny thing was that a couple days after stopping Viibryd, I felt as good as I had in quite awhile. This only lasted for a few days and I started feeling crappy again, no energy, no drive. I started Viibryd again and the exact sequence reocc...

Switching from Lexapro to Viibryd
8 Replies RSS
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...
