At first I needed to take a probiotic or eat yogurt with probiotics to help with the nausea side effect but after the first month, no side effects were noticed. Mood is generally better and a slight decrease in anxiety as well.

I have been on Viibryd about 1 year, and my Dysthymic depression has abated somewhat. I don't feel better so much as I merely feel less worse.

Don't believe the hype about no sexual side effects. Complete BS.

I have been on every depression med out there, and I mean everything! This has done wonders for me, but I will say I also had thyroid issues and finally got that stable. So it may be a combination of getting both things in sync. This is expensive, cost with insurance is $70/mo. I am online right now to find coupons but sales reps give doctors samples, so go and they will give you free samples ... Show Full Comment

Also I experienced ringing in my ears. It took me three days to recover from this night ... Show Full Comment
