    I have been on viibryd for four weeks. I began with the 10mg, 20mg for the first two weeks which aside from the positive feelings were awful due to GI issues, night sweats, nightmares, and just spacing out.

    My psych decided to put me on Viibryd after Cymbalta fizzled (I took it for 2 and a half years). They were overlapped for a couple of weeks, then Cymbalta went away and Viibryd was the mainstay. Quickly bumped to 40mg each morning. My head went "numb" and I was slow to respond to questions, emotions, conversation - everything. I'd been on it for about 6 months when Mother's Day r ...

    I began taking this medication about 1 year ago. I take 40mg 1 pill per day. I was prescribed by neurologist as substitite for a different SSRI. It was substituted for purposes of helping with energy without sexual side effects. Here is why this rating system is not useful: for me, i have no energy and have a hard time with fatigue.

    I've been taking Viibryd for 8 days now and already I feel like that dark cloud of depression is lifting. I'm not crying everyday and I'm actually sleeping better.

    This medication did nothing but make my life a living hell. I had horrible stomach aches with diarrhea. It made me feel like a zombie with no emotion. I had to take my boyfriends adderrall just to feel normal. I had suicidal thoughts and nightmares about my kids getting hurt and on top of that I could barely even go to sleep. It was a horrible drug for me and I would NOT recommend it
