First, remember that there is no way to predict how each individual will react to a drug - what works miracles for one person may be a nightmare for another. That said, this drug was dangerous for me. I began at 5 mg/day for 1 week and had few side effects other than mild stomach upset for a few days. Up to 10 mg/day for 2nd week. No improvement in depression at all but gradually increasing rag ... Show Full Comment

I'm updating from a review I wrote on 12/28/11. I've been on 20mg Viibryd for about 5 weeks now. It is a love/hate relationship. I will start with the love. I feel great and am finding joy in so many of the simple things in life that I didn't even know I could enjoy. For years I just thought I was lazy when it came to getting chores and projects done around the house, but I now know it ... Show Full Comment

That third night as I was falling asleep, as soon as I would start to dose off I heard a loud electric sound inside my head and it would startle me so bad I'd jump. This happened 5 times that night all ... Show Full Comment

I thought I was losing my mind until I read other people's experiences with "brain zaps". I have been on almost every anti-depressant known to man, but until now have never known these were a real thing. I have suffered them in the past if I missed a dose or was tapering. You think I would have been advised by my doc. Now I am on Viibryd and am researching at midnight because of ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I began taking the Viibryd starter pack and things were fine until I got to 40MG. It was at that point I was nauseous every morning until late in the day, increased anxiety, slight headaches, dizzines, diarrhea to name a few. I was taking it in the morning with very little food. For the past week I switched to taking it with my evening meal and the side effects have vanished my anxiety and depress ... Show Full Comment
