I started Viibryd in early February, and am at 40 mg. About 2-3 weeks ago I started having increased anxiety - and last week I started having full panic attacks each morning before work. My Dr called in Lamictal on Tues and by today the attacks have stopped.
Has anyone else had increased anxiety from the med?
Grrrlgone; Yes this can be pretty common with many people and also this new combination seems to help many so I would just continue with the flow. And try not to dwell on the panic attack you were having it only seems to mess with us. But it really is common for many of us with this imbalance to have to take from 1 to 3 medications to keep them under control you are doing just fine. stay positive and sounds like you a good doctor that has a good understanding of this condition.
I'm glad the Lamictal helped. I'm on 40mgs of Viibryd and 150mgs of Lamictal. I've been on Lamictal for many years, in combination with other antidepressants. This combination seems to be working for me.
