I'm on Lamictal and Viibryd. The other SSRIs stopped working or didn't work at all. The Lamictal alone or paired with Seroquel wasn't doing it.

It may have saved my marriage and it certainly made my life worth living again.

I have been on this medication for 3 weeks. Two weeks at 10 mg and the past week I've been at 20 mg. I am now beginning a week at 30 mg, and if that goes well my doc wants me to bump up to 40 mg. I am tapering off Lexapro which has worked well for me in the past and noticing that my mood is definitely lower. Viibryd has not "kicked in" yet to be giving me much mood lift. I'm ...
