    I was up to 90mg of Cymbalta and still experiencing tough depression symptoms. Was weaned off Cymbalta while starting the Viibryd to cut withdrawl symtoms of Cybalta.

    I had a horrible time beginning this drug but my psych insisted that I stick with it and gave me some things to help with the side effects. Going above 20 mgs was really tough side effects wise but after being on the 40 mg for a couple of weeks the side effects subsided and I have never been on a drug that helped my depression like this. I have energy, focus, no sexual side effects. I will say ... Show Full Comment

    I have anxiety and depression and have tried lots of meds like paxil, effexor, lexapro. Lexapro just stopped working for the depression. Began the starter pack of viibryd 3 weeks ago. I have not been able to get past 20 mgs. Had an initial burst of energy the 1st week, but experienced some vivid bad dreams and stomach issues. Would have put up with it though, because the depression felt so much ... Show Full Comment
