I have MMD and had been put on every SSRI's out there to no avail. Both the depression and suicidal thoughts were horrible. I was unable to shake either one. In Jan of 2012, I was put on Viibryd, basically as a last resort. It took about 8 weeks to kick in, but when it did the depressive and suicidal thoughts stopped. It was the 1st time in 8 years that I was able to not think about anything n ... Show Full Comment

This is the first time I have ever taken antidepressants so I don't really know how it works, but I feel the same as I have...I feel dizzy, nauseous, and have diarrhea everyday. They said the side effects should ware off after a few weeks, but so far I haven't noticed a change in mood.

I don't believe Viibryd is a good medication for some patients and more care should be taken before giving it. This drug made my mother so confused and she didn't recognize her own bedroom or children. This has never happened before. She was crying and laughing, anxious and scared. Everything negative and she had only been on it for 3 weeks. In just the last 2 days that we did not giv ... Show Full Comment
