I have been on my current medication, Viibryd, for two years and I am considered stable and completely functionally. :)
Still, I have a bad day every now and again. Nothing too serious, just tears and such.
If you are having issues more serious than that, see your doctor.
Hi, relyse! Some people just starting an anti-depressant may feel a worsening of their symptoms for a week or two ~ deeper depression, anxiety, etc. This usually only lasts for a short time before the good effects kick in. But if they become severe or you feel a suicidal tendency, you should notify your doctor immediately.
Once you stabilize on your med ~ usually about 4-6wks ~ you may have a bad day every so often, but nothing like the overwhelming problems you had before treatment.
Best wishes, WCV
