    1st wk 10mg, 2nd wk 20mg not much help but okay. 3rd week on 40mg and real bad side effects started after 1wk and gotten worse. Strange, alrming dreams, waking every 15 mins. Very bad GI problems. Stomach growling, diarhea, light headedness. I am in the process of getting off this med now. Worst experience ever had and I have tried quite a few. Good luck to all.

    today will be my first dose, but after reading ALOT of peoples reviews, I question what is the best time of the day to take the med? Can someone who is taking Viibryd answer this? I've been on Cymbalta, took it in the morning, because taking it at night made me tired at work the next day. I look forward to anyone/everyone's reply. Sherri

    7 days in and I feel better everyday. I was previously on Prozac and was always sleepy and sexless. Tried Wellbutrin...made me angry at everyone and everything. So far this has really worked. I have a sample pack from my doc and will be increasing the dosage to 20mg per day starting tonight. I dont have any side effects yet.
