Had been on Lexapro 20mg for about 5 yrs, stopped working. Tapered up on Viibryd 10,20, 40. Felt great the 1st month. Put on 6lbs (not good).

(like an electrical jolt) Bad dreams (not nightmares), naus ... Show Full Comment

I am 38 yrs. old, married w/ 4 kids. Have always suffered from depression since high school. Tried every anti-depressant out there, nothing has ever worked until about 6 days ago.

I have a happy vibrant 19 year old who wants to return to college and complete her studies, when before all she could focus on was delusional behavior, death and de ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I am writing this because, it seems, many others have had similar experiences. I have been on Lexapro 20mg and wellbutrin 300xl for 7 yrs. Feeling numb, listless and uninterested so started trial pack of Viibryd 5 weeks ago. Continued Lexapro during first week. I am still on wellbutrin. Felt more positive, more energy, interest, could go to sleep at night and wake up early, although I did ex ... Show Full Comment
