Such as Viibryd? I can't see anywhere that they are not supposed to be mixed but really want to make sure before I start the Viibryd. I am wanting to ditch the subs anyways so I am wondering if I should go ahead and get off of them and start the Viibryd? Any suggestions?
Dear Sarah, yes you can and many people do get depressed when they quit opiates so if you feel you need it, you can take it. That is a new antidepressant, so, I don't know too much about that one. If you will add more info about how long you've been on subs and how high a dose, we might be able to help guide you on a taper plan. Most people can't just stop subs suddenly, it needs to be tapered off of. Patti
I am on an a/d and am fine with suboxone. I am on Citalopram. I have heard and read about people on a/d's and are fine.
Have you done any research on the specific a/d you are on and any interactions with suboxone. People are on many different types of a/d's from SSRI's to other types and most are doing well.
So you haven't started your a/d yet? Is that right?
Some, in fact many, a/d's have some side effects at the beginning. Whether this will be an interaction will need some research and talking to a professional as to what is the a/d on it's own and what might be the two combined.
HOW long are you on the Suboxone? What dose are you on? From what I have heard from those who really know a lot it isn't advisable to jump quickly from a high dose.
I'm sure some 'more seasoned' folks will chime in and be even more help to you.
Hope my few words were of some help. At least you know you're not alone.
