I have been on Viibryd 40 mg almost since the first day it came out and was one of the lab rats when it was in clinical trials. I loved it because it made me feel normal. I have noticed though for about 18 months I have issues with leg swelling, water retention and significant abdominal bloat that won't go away. I am going to try going down to 20 mg. Any one else have these issues? Did they get better with a reduced dose? I hate to go off because I feel awake and not experiencing almost nonfunctional exhaustion with terrible allergies and weird aches and pains I have without it. No other med besides Viibryd has ever really helped. Any ideas?

Hello, Susan! How are you doing? I'm sorry about the problems that you're having.

Is this the only medication that you're on? How is your blood pressure?

The bloating can be a normal side effect, but going by the FDA detailed listing, I'm not finding anything stating that it's known to cause edema and fluid retention. Other typical side effects may include nausea, dizziness, dry mouth and palpitations.

Have you consulted your doctor about this, yet? You do need to have this checked out, as soon as possible.
