Started Viibryd March 7, 2014 and 10mg eased my MDD immediately. As I titrated upwards not so much. At 40mg I realize I need to lower dosage back to either 20mg or 10mg due to various side effects such as dizzyness, shaking, tremor of head and hands, muscle cramps and some more crying. At 40mg this drug may be too powerful for my system. I do think it works great at lower dosages. At five we ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
As an RN who is on permanent disability, I became severely depressed because I love nursing and am unable to return to work. My MD was extremely concerned and gave me a sample to try.
