The over-reaction of the ER was n ... Show Full Comment

My daughter has taken many other anti-depressants, one of which gave her a life threatening allergic reaction; this med has greatly improved her life . It has released her from the deep dark depressed suicidal feelings she experienced. I have a happy vibrant 19 year old who wants to return to college and complete her studies, when before all she could focus on was delusional behavior, death and de ... Show Full Comment

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

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
