The worst medicine ever. I felt foggy and had no emotions--no sadness but no joy. Then the terrible stomach pains began. Thought I had ulcers and went to my doctor. Had CT scans and other tests. Could find nothing wrong. Have stopped the Viibyrd--gradually of course. I feel so much better. I would not ever recommend this medication.

At first I had nightmares with viibyd, but I immediately started noticing my depression was better. I also woke up every hour during the night in the beginning, but that went away. This is by far the best medicine I have ever had for my depression. The side effects will go away if you stick with it. Be brave.

I started with the trial pack and have been on 40mg for a week now. Im not sure if it started with the 20mg or the 40mg, but I have had horrible nightmares. I could not even tell myself if I was just dreaming or in reality. They have been such intense frightening dreams that I have prayed to God to wake me up if it was in fact a dream. One time when the dream continued I really panicked thinking i ... Show Full Comment

I have not experienced any of the side effects warned about. No stomach issues and no insomnia. I have been taking it with food so that may be a good reason for no issues. So far so good and I am feeling much better.
