52 years of depression and anxiety--agoraphobia--every med on the market. Viibryd went to work by the third dose of 10 mg. No more suicidal thoughts from the third dose. Little anxiety in the evening--but I have night terrors, Energized and focused without being manic. Insomnia is a problem on 40 mg for me.

I could not tolerate the 40 dose, the 20 dose has not been very effective on depression. I can no longer fit into my pants because of belly bloating and continual weight gain. I also have heat flashes, some so bad I turn red. I think Doct ... Show Full Comment
