viibryd stomach bloating & leg swelling

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.

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?
