I starting taking viibryd after having no luck on lexapro, paxil, celexa, effexor, toprol, wellbutrin etc etc. Started on 10mg starter pack and went up to 40 fairly quickly. Family noticed that I was much more agitated and crying all the time...also have frequent suicidal thoughts...which aren't typical. I told both the therapist and psyc about this. Now both think i should try a tricyclic drug Pamelor.

Has anyone tried this after no luck w/ the common SSRI's. Specifically interested in if I can start on the Pamelor while still weening off V. I'm on 15mg now b/c i had moderate dizziness going from 20mg V straight to 10mg. My body seems very sensitive to weening. I have to do it by 5mg increments since I have anxiety the dizziness makes my anxiety/ panic worse.

Oh btw, I also noticed my hair falling out and thought it was bc i was overdue for a Can't wait to get the heck off the V.

If anyone can help w/ the Pamelor ? I'd greatly appreciate it.

My father, my daughter and I have all taken Pamelor. I took it for almost 20 years and the only side effect for any of us our mouths would be dry all the time. I had to stop taking it because it made the tinnitus in my ears worse. I've tried others and wish I could have the Pamelor back! It was like a wonder drug for all of us. My father has since passed away but my daughter still takes it.

There are some possible risks associated with taking Pamelor and Viibryd at the same time, sch as serotonin syndrome and increased TCA levels.

However, it is not listed that they shouldn't be used together, just that the doctor must carefully watch the dosages and should be monitoring your sodium levels, during the process.



Have you discussed it with your doctor?

I found that 40mg of Viibryd was way too much and cut my dose back to 20, which seems great. Viibryd is supposed to be somewhat similar to tricyclic antidepressants like Trazadone. It might help but I would try gradually cutting back your dose of Viibryd. It might make all the difference. It did for me.. Best of luck.

I was weaning off of viibryd and started on pamelor at same time and started having fevers and muscle spasm and severe headache. Early Signs of serotonin syndrome. I would wean completely off the viibryd first then try the pamelor

Was on Viibryd for 4 years, which went ok. UNTIL THE END when my dose was increased to 40. I kinda started going bat s*** crazy. Crying, anger bursts, severe anxiety. It was HORRIBLE. 20 mg was ok. But as soon as it bumped to 40 I began to notice those negative side effects. I decided that it has had useful life with me and weaned off. With the help of a little Xanax. Now on 75 Effexor. Tried the Lexapro NO GO for me, couldn't get out of bed. But the Effexor seems to be ok.
