I know I need to eat with Viibryd. I was doing whole meals but I'm trying to watch my weight so I was wondering what I can/should eat before I take it? Is yogurt ok to eat? Do I have to eat a lot?
What can/should I eat to take Viibryd with? Is it ok to eat yogurt?

Mrs Crow, i conçut with taking Viibryd with a real meal, but not too close to bedtime. There are some people who claim they have gained ridiculous amounts of weight on Viibryd but this was not found to be true for the majority of participants in the drug trials. In the past 9 months, have gained no weight whatsoever that I could blame on Viibryd.
My doctor told me to take it with my heaviest meal of the day. I just hope I can get this weight off.
I had more between annoying side effects at the increase from10 to 20. I suspect that by 40 our systems may have actually accepted it. I really noticed very little stepping up to 40. I've felt great ever since. Hopefully it will be a good transition for you as well
Do I recall correctly that you are still on Viibryd 20, or have you stepped up to 40 yet? Is your GI system settling down, I hope?
Let's see... in July last year my MD and I concluded that after 7 years, Wellbutrin had stopped being effective for me. It wasn't just overnight, but I began to realize the familiar old feelings of despair had returned. I started Viibryd (reluctantly,) in late July or early August, 2012. So... it will soon be 8 months and the unpleasant side effects are in the rear view mirror. I'm really fortunate that I hung in there. It has been a remarkable drug for me. Hope you're doing better as well.
Hi dear lennongurl,
I was actually thinking about you today! It sounds like you're hanging in with the Viibryd. I found that I did better eating something pretty substantial with my AM dose, not just a glass of milk. I'm happy to say that after a couple months all the GI discomfort stopped entirely.
I take it now with just a little food or with my protein drink, (which has yogurt in it.) i actually think the yogurt culture is a good thing. I assume you're taking it in the morning?
Let me know how you're doing please. As you know, I'm the Viibryd Queen!
Yep..my doc told me to eat at least a piece of toast or cereal or somrthing with a little substance to it , or the Viibryd will not be as effective.
Hello lennongurl. To the best of my knowledge, there are no dietary restrictions when a person ts taking Viibryd. Most all medications are taken with some sort of food. Helps the bodys chemistry to process the drug more easily and comfortably. Regards pledge
