I have taken the meds for 15 days. By the second week taking 20 mg daily I have felt anxious, hostle, angry and have had sucidal thoughts. I experienced muscle tightness in my calves plus cramps. I saw my doctor today and will begin Zoloft tomorrow which has been beneficial in the past. Viibryd is not for me.

Almost 2 months on Viibryd (40mg). I noticed significant improvement in my depression about 1 week ago. Anxiety is still not great though.

The only side effects now are a little lightheadedness within 3-4 hours of taking the pill and insomnia. Once I finally fall to sleep, I a ... Show Full Comment

I started this drug two weeks ago. I started with 10mg and felt alright. I thought it was going to be great from what I started feeling.

It is making me feel crazy and I am immediately getting off of this. I would thin ... Show Full Comment
