I've been on vii for 8 days this time. I took it once before and at day seven I was smiling, feeling good but that night I didn't sleep at all so I stopped talking it. This time I'm staying at 10mg for a couple weeks then going up to 20. So far this time it's effect has been very subtle but I am hopeful. 17 meds so far with only Prozac, Paxil, and Lexapro being effective for a time. I'm not sure that serotonin is my problem.

I have tried every other drug and combination imaginable, and nothing worked until Viibryd. There is an easy fix for sleep paralysis, "brain zap" sensations, and all the other sleep-related side effects, which is taking a benzodiazepine at least 30 minutes before bed. I take 2 mg Clonazepam, and I feel GREAT with no side effects. Viibryd was LITERALLY a life saver for me!

I have tried every other drug, and only Viibryd has worked for me. I wouldn't take a million dollars to give up Viibryd. I take 2 mg Clonazepam and it works like a charm.

I have been on viibryd 40mg for a little over a month. I am doing ok I suppose, not sure what normal is anymore.... anyway, I have always had trouble falling asleep. Melatonin became a god send a few years ago. since I started taking viibryd after dinner, and melatonin before bed I found I have crazy insane nightmarea that I try to wake up from and cant! Not a good combo, I do not recommend mixing the two unless you like nightmares :/

It's new and it's freaking expensive! Insurance doesn't cover it most of the time. $500 for a co-pay? Out of here! Figure out something else

I've been on 20 mg Viibryd daily for 3-4 months for OCD (intrusive thoughts). Major decrease in the thoughts after about 11-12 weeks, as predicted. Before that, little to no impact. Side effects include frequent very low grade headache, difficulty sleeping (waking up repeatedly, not sleeping deeply), nausea when nervous (also threw up twice under anxious circumstances after 3 mos. of med., perhaps due to virus; anxious nausea has only happened on Viibryd), and bloating, especially after eating. For me, though, the benefits far outweigh the side effects.

Been on it about 3 weeks and the past two days my skin is itching in random places all over my body. Skin is clear when it starts itching then I itch it and these little hive like bumps PPP up. When the itching finally subsides (by that I mean moves to a new location) the hives go away after about 45min. Also I have a very mild case of scoliosis and expirence lower back pain when doing heavy lifting but since taking viibryd I wake up with my back hurting and go to sleep with it hurting almost every day.. I'm stopping and will just deal with my mild case of depression.

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.
