Hi. I have been on it about 7 months. I getting off of it as it has opposite effect. I feel lazy and tired which is not like me at all. I have watched more TV this last 6 months than a whole life time. Unless something else is wrong with me I blame it on the drug. At first I loved it. I was going through lots of new medical things that were life threatening. It also cost me $95 which I was cutting the 40mg in half to get 2 months from it. Hope this helps. Peggy
Hello! I do not have akathesia, but I do have a mild form of Restless Leg Syndrome, and the Viibryd DOES amplify it, especially if I take it too close to bedtime (~6hrs). I take mine at the beginning of my day when I'll be active, so it doesn't bother me. If I take it too close to bedtime my legs twitch like mad!
If you decide to try Viibryd, Begin with the Starter Pak - 10/20/40mgs. If it begins to bother you let your doctor know, & see if you can try another med.
I hope this helps, & good luck to you! -Bob
