Viibryd

I went to see my doctor about my mild/moderate anxiety and depression. He gave me a dose pack/sample pack of Viibryd. He said that this drug is a new drug, will help with both depression and anxiety, and people find they don't have most of the side effects of other anti depressants. So I thought that was great and I started it right away.
But then I got curious and did some searching on the internet. I found tons and tons of discussion boards full of people talking about the horrible side effects they get especially after the first 2-4 weeks. I couldnt find one person saying they have been on it, have little problems, like it, and/or are still on it.

Anyone have any positive out comes? and any new info on this drug?

Hi there. You should certainly talk to your doctor about your concerns now. Ask him if he's had any experience with patients who've had problems with the drug or any early warning signs you should watch for.

Also, I like this website because it is well-researched, written in an engaging style and the name makes me laugh: http://www.crazymeds.us/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Meds/Viibryd
