I have been on viibryd now 3 days. I feel great already. ( that was hard to believe in 3 days) Its like day 2 I was able to get out of bed, day 3 I actually have stopped crying and I feel like I have come out of a awful darkness? So I am loving the medicine but now on day 3 I woke up to very puffy eyes (awful looking) I didnt seen anywhere in the leaflet about this symptom... Has anyone else had this problem. I SO do not want to stop this medicine the others meds caused awful weight gain etc. etc. so why is it in find something great and now this ??? Any input would be appreciated on the eye swelling ....

Have you ever had any allergies?

It sounds like it might be a slight allergic reaction, of some type, though I can't say whether it's to something in the Viibryd, or something else unrelated.

Learn more Viibryd details here.

Have you called your doctor?

Were you rubbing your eyes at night?

I didn't take my does last night because family was concerned over my "puffy eyes" woke up no puffiness. I am going to start back again to see if it happens tonight because I truly have noticed a difference already??? :/ However if it is I wonder if the allergic reaction is enough to stop, will it go away ?? I wish you could get through when you call the doctors office to ask these things. The viibryd website says nothing about this reaction. :(

I have been taking Viibryd for 6 days. Last night my husband had me watch the saddest move about the overpopulation of dogs, gas chamber, neglect, etc. Of course I cried throughout the whole hour. I usually get puffy eyes after crying but what was weird was that my eyes are still puffy 24 hours later and the swelling hasn't gone down much even after ice compresses. Im not taking viibryd for an antidepressant. Im generally a happy person, but get anxious easily and/or worry too much.

I had the same problem on Viibryd after only a few days of taking it. I am now on my third week of Viibryd and the puffy eyes are much better. I have been wearing a cool gel eye mask at night and that seems to be helping.

I am on day 3 of usinjg VIIBRYD and the first day I felt sick and vomited a bit. The second day I felt really good but then woke up today with major puffy eyes, they hurt but do not itch. I called my Dr. and am waiting for a call back. I really don't want to switch medicines again so I'm hoping the puffy eyes will go away. They are pretty swollen and my boss asked me why I was even at work when I obviously don't feel well. I have also been reading that a lot of people have gained weight. I lost 40lbs after my last child and do not want to gain anymore back, so I'm getting pretty nervous to even go on with this med.

I had puffy eyes for the first few weeks had no idea it was the medication. They are getting better each day. However I am in week 5 and at 40mg and experienced the flashing when I tried to sleep this week went three days of 2 hours or less each night, extreme sweating, and finally yesterday, I had awful awful night terrors with hullucinations so vivid I was violently screaming and crying in my sleep but was not fully concious to my family trying to wake me and it took me a full 24 hours to gather myself together. I have NEVER experienced such a thing and it was very scary. However the Vibryd up till the 40mg, seemed to really be helping me feel like myself again and start activating. MY doctor wanted to take me off, but I am afraid to lose the progress. So we have cut back to 20mg. Anyone else have the flashes? or a sililar experience.

I am having the same puffy, droopy eyelids and puffy bags under my eyes. I experienced this on Viibryd, as well.
