I have been on Viibryd for almost 2 years now and in many ways it has been a life saver! I feel more like myself than I have in a really long time and for the most part I love this med. However, I have been dealing with too many crappy side effects for too long. I thought I could handle the occasional bad night's sleep and the vivid dreams but it has gotten so bad lately. I'm having nightmares on a regular basis and sleep paralysis episodes at least once a week. On top of that, I've been getting what I've heard called brain zaps, where I feel like an electric shock goes through my head... not really painful but very disorienting. I just can't handle not feeling rested anymore. Then my psychiatrist up and left the practice and I'm having a hard time getting into see a new one right away. Could things get more annoying? But my real concern is weaning off of Viibryd and finding a new med that helps. I've missed a dose once and never want to go through that again! It was terrible withdraw. How hard is it to get off this drug after taking it for so long?
