I was suffering from depression where I cried daily at the drop of a hat. I feared losing my job, my home- My depression was debilitating. My doctor started my at half a 10mg pill daily and then went to 10mgs per day after two weeks. And there I stayed. I felt better almost instantly. The crying stopped the very day I started taking it. The hopelessness, anxiety and anger stopped within days. I ha ... Show Full Comment

When i first started taking this medicine I felt great, abnormally great. I was on a high, it wasn't the mid-range normal i was looking for but a vast improvement from the 24-7 cry fest. That went away after a couple weeks. I couldn't take the medication at night because it made it where i couldn't sleep so i take it in the morning and it serves the purpose of a cup of coffee. I really ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
38yo female. Doctor gave me Viibryd after failed attempts with 2 other drugs. At 10mg I had insomnia - lasted about 2 weeks. I also had RLS for the same two weeks. I did have excellent support at home - considering I wasn't sleeping well. I hung in there and moved up to 20mg. The RLS and insomnia subsided but I then had very active sleep (where you are sleeping but your brain is not). Luckily ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I started taking Viibryd for my depression about 3 months ago. I took it at night at first to avoid nausea, then switched to AM. My biggest issue was the horrible vivid nightmares which have resolved since taking it in the AM. Diarrhea has been off and on still at 3 months. Currently, I'm taking 20mg in the AM and 10mg at night. No more nightmares, helps me get up in the AM to take a small dos ... Show Full Comment
