Hi joe,

The only person who can legally advise you to come off your medications is your doctor. But if it's anything to you, I would personally suggest sticking with it for the remainder of your tapering period. Reason being is that the main point of weening off is to avoid any further withdrawal symptoms than you might already have. So if you say that "you're ready to kill", then I'd hate to hear what going cold-turkey might be like.

Have you considered asking your doctor about other natural alternatives that may be used as an adjunctive therapy to viibryd, as a way of lessing the severity of symptoms during your transition?
