Default Viibryd?

When is this going to be available and will it have a generic?
I dont know how the whole generic thing works; is it years before we see a generic?

Viibryd will prob be expensive Im guessing?

I have had success with SSRI's but the sexual side effects were enough for me to stop (PROZAC, ZOLOFT, CITALOPRAM)

Heard Viibryd does not have sexual side effects and will try it if insurance covers it.

any feedback appreciated.
thx

Usually one wouldnt ask in the same post "when is it going to be available" and "when will it have a generic". It's like asking your father on a road trip "are we there yet?" when you haven't even left the driveway yet.

how do i rephrase so one understands?

When it becomes available is there a generic that goes along with it?

Or does it take years for a generic to be produced?

Please be so kind as to advise..

When it becomes available in a certain country it's because the drug acquired a patent in that country. There won't be a generic until the patent expires for the drug.

Sources say it will be available (whether it's samples or in pharmacies), towards the end of June. It will first come out as a brand name if your in the U.S., although many insurances may cover brand at a slightly higher co-pay. If not, try the samples first to see if its really worth the extra cost.

Default Viibryd NOW AVAILABLE

Just got my script for it. Pharmacies can order it if they don't have it in stock.

Check it out!

What Pharmacy did you get your script from Gregory? I contacted Walgreens and they said they should be getting it in June 17th, but they also said they would have it earlier on the 6th and there was some delay. Getting tired of waiting.

Greg, can you update your status on how Viibryd is working for you? I finally got my rx, but the pharmacy had to special order it from their distributor. To start it, it has to be titrated to 10mg the first week, 20mg the 2nd, and then 40mg thereafter. I can see why, because after my first 10mg dose, it was sedating and made me fall asleep.

Default Update

Day 12 and it's working fairly well. Anxiety is down and a bit more social. It's different than a regular SSRI.

I do have a little more feeling in my sexual region. Still a wait and see approach to this.

I'm on 20mg right now. I have a few more days before I move up to 40mg.

I'd post more, but I feel I should get to at least a few weeks before a full review.

I've been on Viibryd for about a week and ramped up to 30mg. I have experienced side effects such as nausea, mild dizziness, sleepiness and slight gastrointestinal effects. I am so far a bit disappointed, although it still somewhat hard to quantify because I am already in a depressive episode and coming off effexor. There is some antianxiety effect, but my motivation (including social), hasn't really been proactive yet and feel somewhat lazy. I hope it slowly changes, but I'm not too sure anything different will come out of it.

I've been on it 2 weeks so far; the nausea has gone away and the, the fogginess and dizziness decreased when I take it at night. I've noticed some mild differences, such as a reduction in anxiety. just not sure it will be strong enough for long term; but I want to try to give it the full 6-8 weeks if I can. I'm still weaning off Effexor. It's definitely not as strong as Effexor, that's for sure.
