    I had strange dreams and feelings the first week of taking Viibryd. For the past year since then, I consider it a miracle drug.... My "anti-murder" drug. I began taking it for depression and 20mg was all I ever needed.

    After titrating up to 40 mg the fireworks started. The awful anger, pounding heart, feeling very out of control, AND the visual hallucinations - I have never taken illegal drugs, but if that is what it is like, no thank you. My dr and I backed it down to 20 mg every morning...I am doing well on that dose. The 40 mg was just awful for me!

    I thought I was losing my mind and I only took two 10mg along with Zoloft. I didn't take any after that. I couldn't sit. I had to be constantly moving, my heart was racing, I was sweating, my skin felt like bugs were crawling on me. And I developed an eye problem the first day I took it. This drug is a nightmare literally.
