I have been on most anti-depressants on the market but they stop working after a while. When my doctor gave me a sample packet with 10mg, 20mg and 40mg,I threw the paperwork away. I started on 10mg every morning for seven days. I THOUGHT I HAD DIED AND GONE TO HEAVEN. I felt like a new person. The same thing with the 20mg. My family and friends were amazed; however, I did talk a lot about not...

Did not take with food and after a month I called customer service to learn that it is not a suggestion but a REQUIREMENT- this should be made more clear. My DNA test said this is the most effectively metabolized antidepressant but so far a big disappointment. Will give it more time.

I started this medication because I had gone through so many others that either didnâ??t work or caused severe nose bleeds. I went through probably around 11 different medications before starting Viibryd. It is the only medicine that has worked for me. I have never been happier.

I have jus finished tapering off after being on viibryd for just over 2 years. Let�s start in the beginning. I have always dealt with bouts of anxiety and depression my whole life. 4 years ago my brother passed away and I couldn�t handle it. So I started searching for meds that worked for me.. it was a rollercoaster and after 2 years of on and off different meds. I finally found viibryd. Now I have always been anti-drug I don�t like taking medication at all. But if it could help I was willing to give it a try as my wife was suffering from watching me fall into deep depression. Viibryd worked well for me in the beginning I only had a few minor side effects (stomachs issues, insomnia) sexual side effects were the worst and are still current. I tapered down from 40 to 20 then 10 mg and am now off for only 3 days. The meds really helped me get my life back on track. since I have been off I have only experienced a little fatigue and some slight dizziness once in a while. My only reason for getting off the med is because the tier group for viibryd has changed from tier 3 to a tier 4 and my insurance refused to cover their portion unless I tried other meds and I am not going through that process all over again. BIG PROPS TO INSURANCE COMPANIES FOR KNOWING HOW TO GET HALF YOUR PAYCHECK AND NOT DO SHIT FOR YOU... legally! Anyway I have felt fine other than the fatigue and the sexual side effects hopefully they fade soon. Good luck to anyone who is wanting to try this medicine

This is the WORST anxiety/antidepressant medicine I EVER took. I had almost every side effect you can think of on this drug! Please do yourself a favor and stay away as it will make your mind worse. I started a new med this week and am slowly seeing progress.
