Re: Viibryd

I am following the sample pack. I think I go to 40 in 2 more days but might stay at 20 a little longer.
Next appt November 14.
Maybe your Doc could write your rx so that you take 3 10 mg tablets per day and insurance will pay for it that way. It may be simpler than trying to get 20's and 10's....

That's a good idea to talk to my doctor about the script. Let me know if you go up to the 40mg and how you do on it. Please stay in touch.

How are you doing taking the viibryd at bedtime ? Are you feeling better depression wise ?

Re: Viibryd

Maybe have a bit more energy but it takes me awhile to feel awake....depression is probably about the same...I think I will stay on 20 mg for a while longer until I feel more 'normal'- just feeling all out of whack!

Re: Viibryd

I slept good again last night. I think the 30mg is much better than the 40mg. Going to give it a few more days before I asked the doctor for a script. I feel a lot more calm on it.

Re: Viibryd

I'm doing good. Do you have any leg cramps from the viibryd ? Just curious I read on some of the boards. Some people mention leg cramps. Are you going to move up to the 40mg soon?

Re: Viibryd

I stand on my feet all day when I workand have mild RA so my legs do bother me. The first week or so on Viibryd they seemed to be worse but it seems to be abating.
I'm planning on at least another week on 20 mgs.

Re: Viibryd

I stand on my feet also. I notice my feet hurt worse on the 20mg. On the 40 mg didn't bother me like they do on the 20mg. . I'm going to talk to my doctor see if she'll write a script so I can take 30mg. . Mood good on the 40mg, just have a hard time sleeping on it.

Re: Viibryd

Been having headaches and slight stomach issues the past few days. Will be staying with the 20 mgs until this clears up!

Re: Viibryd

Sorry you're not feeling well. I went back up to 40mg last night. I really feel less side effects with 40mg. . I don't sleep that well on the 40mg.. You might want to try the 40mg and see if that helps with your stomach issues and headaches.

Re: Viibryd

I did try it, and as far as energy and motivation I think it is good. Sleep not so great, but I am hoping it will get better. We have a major storm coming and my husband didn't sleep either. So who knows, maybe it isn't even the Viibryd!

Last year we had a storm and didn't have power for 6 days. They are thinking this one might be worse. So if you don't hear from me, don't take it personally.

Re: Viibryd

I would stay with the 40mg of viibryd for a while. I notice my feet don't hurt on the 40mg.
It's strange how meds. work. I know my daughter is getting prepare for the storm also. I hope and pray you guys don't lose power.
