I started on Viibrid 3 weeks ago, and despite the side effects, which were frightenly horrid at first, my body is getting used to it. Now, I don't think I can afford the medication, and I wish I had really researched that aspect, before I went through the initiation (that's what it felt like) of the Viibryd. I may have to transition to Lexapro, but I am afraid of another rollercoaster of side effects as I come off of it. I am on the SSRI for Anxiety and mild to moderate depression, I hate zombie induction of Benzodiazepines (ativan, valium, xanax, clonopin) to control the panic attacks. Any thoughts?
