I've been on prozac, Cymbalta, wellbutrin, paxil, and others and had sexual side effects, profuse sweating, and weight gain. Still I did not feel like my old self prior to my depression. I started viibryd 2 months ago after going off all my meds and feeling very anxious and depressed. It was strong when I first took it, and I felt nauseous and lethargic for about 2 days when I first began tak ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
This medicine MADE me crazy. The nightmares were so horrible. I didn't feel like they were over when I woke up. I got increasingly angry and irritable with the weeks I was on it. I quit at 6 weeks and have no plans to go back to the Dr. that prescribed. I've never experienced anything like it. I was falling apart. It did nothing for my anxiety or depression except make them worse.

My doctor gave me the sample pack which contained 7 days of 10mg, 7 days 20mg, 14 days of 40mg. I didn't have bad side affects until the first 40mg. I took it at supper time. At 3:00 in the morning I thought I was having a nervous breakdown. I couldn't stop pacing back and forth, my hands were tingling, dizzy, sweating, racing heart, legs kept twitching, felt terrible. Called the doctor ne ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I took the 10mg for a week and the first 3 days were fine. I was still depressed and anxious, but I was able to get out of bed feeling ready for the day. I was starting to feel better. By the 4th day, I had begun waking up in the middle of the night not being able to breathe, which is something that has never happened to me. I've also never reacted negatively to a medication. I expressed my co ... Show Full Comment
