... my depression but I was having increased problem with Anxiety having returned to working "outside the home" after 18 years. Will Vii help anxiety? Nothing has changed yet. I realize it has only been a couple days. But does Vii do anything for anxiety? The anxiety also causes or increases my self-injurious behavior of scratching at my fingers, esp. the side of and around my fingernails going down a few layers of skin. Also, the anxiety makes it hard to focus well and pay attention. I took Fluoxetine for several years and did try Busprine for a couple weeks. Any thoughts? Thanks!
Hi, Beth! Besides being in the SSRI class of antidepressants which are commonly used to treat anxiety disorders, Viibryd has an additional component that acts very much like an anti-anxiety drug that you're a little familiar with ~ Buspar. In a 2015 clinical study Viibryd proved to be significantly more effective than the placebo.
I think it's work having a shot at it but give it a fair trial. Although you may feel worse for a few days to a week or two this will pass quickly and your static blood level should peak at around 6-8 weeks.
Good luck and best wishes!! Wildcat
Hi Beth yes just as Wildcat has said and the fact that you just went from the one and on to this new one and all of these are known to increase the side effects and symptoms for 7 to 14 days and is much more effective for the anxiety then what you have been on try not to tear yourself up this could be the real one to help you. but this is why you are extra nervous right now is the common 2 weeks or less because you have been on something increase in our symptoms hang in there your going to be just fine
