Re: Viibryd

LBOZ- How are you doing on the 40mg of viibryd? My daughter finally got her power
back this morning. Hope things are going ok with you.

Re: Viibryd

Ok. Some stomach upset, some sleep disturbance and bizarre dreams. Hoping it's temporary! How are you doing?

Re: Viibryd

I'm doing good here. I'm like you don't sleep on the 40mg. I might talk to the doctor about
taking 30mg.

Been waking up at 3 am every morning...eventually fall back asleep then have to get up. I sure hope this passes. How are you doing?

Re: Viibryd

Like you I wake up around that time also. I do feel better on the 40mg and more energy. How's your eating on the 40mg? Might have to asked doctor about something to help me sleep at night. So far this has been the best med for me.

Re: Viibryd

I'm pretty hungry on this stuff!
I've been down the sleep med path before and it caused me more problems so I take benadryl occasionally. I'm kinda hoping the sleep difficulty passes. Like the stomach issues...

Re: Viibryd

Hopeful it will. How much benadryl to you take? Do you take it every night ? I hope the hungry wears off also.

Get this: My copay for this med is $130! Gulp.
If I felt great it would be well worth it, but truly I do not.

Sorry did not see your earlier post. 25 mg Benaryl but not every night. Only when I am desperate to get sleep.

Re: Viibryd

LBOZ- I hope the viibryd starts working better for you. How's the sleep going for you? I go back to the doctor on the 14th. When do you go back?

Re: Viibryd

LBOZ- Are you sleeping any better on the viibryd 40mg? I'm still waking up 3am every morning. Do you think the 40mg is better than the 20mg of viibryd ?

Re: Viibryd

I think I do feel more energized on 40 than I did on 20 but I still am having sleep interruptions to. Barely any sleep last night. Last 2 days I have felt pretty good though...other than first thing in the morning.
I felt like the side effects were worse somehow on the 20 mg dose....

Re: Viibryd

Lboz- Yes, I had more side effects with the 20mg also. I do have more energy on the 40mg.
I don't like not being able to sleep. But my depression is much better on the 40mg. . Are you still hungry on the 40mg?

Re: Viibryd

Some days yes, some days no....I'm hoping for a trend towards not hungry ever, but I don't think that's realistic. I noticed I haven't been as thirsty as on the Cellexa.

Re: Viibryd

LBOZ- Glad you're sleeping better. I'm able to fall back asleep also. The 40mg is better than the 20mg for sure. How much snow did you get ?
