This drug has made me a new person. I am happy again, I have energy and I am enjoying life for the first time in a long time.

My doctor put me on 30 for a week then on alternated from 30-40 for a couple more ... Show Full Comment

I've tried just about every medication available for depression with no luck. Unfortunately I had the same result with Viibryd. It may work for some people but did not for me. I tried it for six months and felt exactly the same. I hope it helps most people.

I am 62 years old. My Dr. started me on Viibryd sample packs. By the time I reached the 40mg dosage. I felt like a completely new person. Before Viibryd I was at the point where I was considering having ECT because I was so severely depressed. I saw no answer or hope of ever being able to lead a normal, full functioning life. Viibryd has truly given me back my life.

Comment:
I had extreme depression. I was to the point of sitting in my recliner watching tv all day. Nothing excited me or made me happy. I cried daily and had terrible anxiety. This lasted over a year. I started Viibryd 2 months ago and I have had an amazing turn around. In years gone by, I tried many SSRI's with no results. With Viibryd, I actually felt a small light in my soul the first day after t ... Show Full Comment
