Is this a common side effect of Viibryd? Does it eventually go away?
I have suffered from sleep paralysis 3 times since being on Viibryd (about 2 months). It had happened once when I took my pill before bed, and two other times when I forgot to take my pill that day (the only two times I had forgotten the pill). One night, the episodes lasted on and off for two hours without stopping before I decided to drink a glass of wine- which helped. The other night I took 1mg of Klonopin which also helped.
I am tapering off of this medication. It is not for me. I much rather go through the agony of withdrawal symptoms than the horror of sleep paralysis.
