I am writing this because, it seems, many others have had similar experiences. I have been on Lexapro 20mg and wellbutrin 300xl for 7 yrs. Feeling numb, listless and uninterested so started trial pack of Viibryd 5 weeks ago. Continued Lexapro during first week. I am still on wellbutrin. Felt more positive, more energy, interest, could go to sleep at night and wake up early, although I did ex ... Show Full Comment

Starting at 10mgs for one week, then 20mgs the next, I felt nothing except a little diarrhea in the morning, some fatigue, a little headachy, a little sleepless, hungry. Minor. After 5 days on 30mgs, though, my spirit lifted for the first time in over a decade, and I've not felt better since I can remember. The only drug that has ever helped in any way has been parnate, which does conk out. I ... Show Full Comment

I was on cymbalta for over 10 years and it just wasn't working anymore. Started on the Viibryd and in the first couple weeks I thought it was amazing. I felt normal, like a human better than in years but within the next few weeks all that was gone. We tried adjusting the doses but my depression was worse than ever. I'm going on a new med and hope it works better. I just wish there was ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I mostly had strong stomach issues on this med--diarrhea, nausea all day, could not eat normally. My doctor kept assuring me that that would all subside. I did have nightmares but the worst was when I began to feel like I was losing my mind...which has never happened to me, ever. This was at the 40 mg dose which I took once. I shook and cried and screamed at family all day, was ravenous but c ... Show Full Comment
