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...

Viibryd Hell!
(This is a bit long but please read it!) Long story short: Ive been a long term sufferer of panic disorder and agoraphobia. Been homebound 3 times in my life. Been on several different medications over the years. Was prescribed Celexa about 7 years ago and while it wasnt perfect for fixing my problem it came close. I was able to marry, start a successful business and live a pretty normal life! Fast forward to around last November. I started having problems with having panic attacks, panic type feelings when out. This got worse and eventually I started feeling sick and having attacks at home and in the night. This went on and got worse and worse until this past April when I finally bit the bullet and when into the my Dr. At that point I was shaking uncontrollably and completely eat up wi...

Viibryd Weight Gain
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 ...

Viibryd has anyone else had a positive experience?
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 10 Mg
How can I stop taking 10 mg viibryd ## How long have you been taking it? It does contain Vilazodone, which is a type of antidepressant, so if you've been taking it for awhile, it may be necessary for you to taper off. However, if you've only been on it for a short time, then you should be able to just stop taking it. Learn more Viibryd details here. Are you experiencing problems from taking it? ## I've been on Viibryd for 9 days and the side effects are intolerable. Is it safe to just stop this early on or would it be less agonizing to take one every other day for a few days? ## I've been on 10mg of Viibryd for 7 days and 20mg for 2 days. The side effects are intolerable. Is it safe to just stop this early on or would it be less agonizing to take one every other day for ...

20mg vs 40 mg of Viibryd
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, ...

Viibryd Withdrawal
Going off Viibryd: From 40mg, I went to 7 days of 20mg then 7 days of 10mg. I felt the affects and mostly it was anxiety/irritability. I was able to work but kept to myself. I did not socialize. I felt sick. When I went off totally it was/is horrible. I'm on my 6th day. I was unable to go to work. I was unable to drive. I was unable to leave my house for fear of flipping out and ending up in jail or hospital. I feel rage. I want to break things. I have yelled at the top of my lungs to two people on the phone. I'm confused, dizzy, disoriented, itchy (that's not new) and out of it. I'm confined to my house until further notice. Very scared and very confused. ## I am very sorry that you are going through this. Have things gotten any better, yet? These types of medications a...
