Began taking viibryd & 2 weeks later, my hair was falling out. Contacted my psychiatrist that viibryd had stopped working to relieve depression symptoms so she prescribed remeron to replace viibryd. Remeron gave me no lift in my spirits - the only thing it did was make me sleepy. In all, I had taken viibryd for about a month & I lost over half of the hair on my head. Dermatologist told me viibryd was the cause & told me to stop taking it. Said hair will regrow but it will take 120 days - 4 months.

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

For 3 months. Yes it's a bummer. I try to be cautious with what I take and make sure I get the protein.
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
