General Satisfaction score :
Treato analyzes billions of patient discussions to understand what patients are saying about their experience with regard to their treatments, diseases and side effects. Treato algorithmically identifies patients' positive experiences about medications within their Web posts, for example acne that cleared up, high blood pressure that was reduced, a certain drug that "worked", and so forth. Treato aggregates all of these discussions to calculate how many positive patient posts each medication received, relative to other drugs. Note that positive patient posts about medications are always aggregated in relation to a specific condition, since the same medication may be used for more than one condition.

Hair Loss on Viibryd
A couple of month into it I noticed my hair becoming very fine. However, while all of my ancestors back as far as I know had great hair, it was at about the age (40s) where you'd expect age-related genetic balding, so it's hard to say.

I'm having the same issue- I've been on it for 6mo and have always had thick hair
Dr said hair loss should not be a side effect. However, nothing else points to it :/ otherwise it has worked well

Minoxidil works really well. It is a dropper that I put on my head when I remember after a shower. The package says to put it on every day, two times a day. I put it on probably 4 to 5 times a week. It actually Tightens the hair shaft to the root! If I don't use it my hair will come out of the root very easily. Most pharmacies sell their brand for about $30 for a 3 month supply. There

I am having the same problem. I am sensitive to any drug or diet that induces hair loss! I am very careful what I ingest. Systemic (ingesting a pill) cortisone (not topical or nasal sprays) will induce hair loss. Lack of eating protein for over 72 hours will induce hair loss. The cycle is as follows: ie if you don't eat protein or ingest cortisone or other drugs that cause hair loss...3 month later you will start losing your hair ( it is never the whole head of hair). The hair loss will last
