Well, I am new to the forum thing, but as I was reading thru all the other posts I just thought maybe I should post too.
I started Viibryd about 4 weeks ago. The first week on 10mg was great, other than the upset tummy and getting the runs. The 2nd week at 20mg was the worst so far. I was still getting the upset tummy, but also had a huge panic attack at work. I had also started my period during the week and I wonder if that had something to do with the breakdown at work...
I am now on the 40mg dose and I have to say that I am feeling great. no more tummy issues and I just am feeling really relaxed and calm. I haven't gotten angry and yelled since I started this med. Just really beginning to remember what it is to feel like me.
The best thing is that my sex drive has come back!! I can't remember the last time I just wanted to jump on my hubby and it's all coming back now!! That makes me so happy!!
I hope that I just keep on feeling better and better. I read somewhere that they have taken the 40mg dose out of the starter pack because it's too much, but I think I'm doing great at 40mg. In my opinion this is the best thing I have ever taken for anxiety/depression. Everything else just left me feeling "bleh", not happy, but not sad either. Just no emotions at all. On Viibryd, I smile and laugh all the time, I make sure that I am giving my hubby the attention he needs and I can better communicate with my daughter. When we go places, I have fun, not just go thru the motions like I had been doing for so long.
Thank you Viibryd for giving me my life back!!!
