on Cymbalta 6 mo. that threw me into a depression. My problem is mostly anxiety and panic attacks. Was on Lexepro 8 years, but built up a tolerance to it. Dr. wanted me to try Vibryd. Alot that I read on these forums scares me to death. I want this to work! Only on day 5. I'm very sleepy and a bit spacey. But, my mind is calm. I know it's gonna take time, but how long? I just want to feel better, mentally and emotionally. The stresses in my life are overwhelming. God is good and I pray He gives us all the strength and patience to get better. First time joining any support group, so yeah, I'm nervous.
Hello ginger3. Welcome to the site. Lots of support to be found here. I'm glad you marked your question as conversational. I don't understand why if your diagnosis or problem is anxiety and panic attacks why your prescribing physician gave you the Viibryd, which is prescribed for generally, major depression. its a SSRI antidepressant, and I hope some of the other members, post an answer to your question. I'd have thought that Paxil would have been a better choice than the Viibryd, as another drug from the SSRI family. Either way, I do hope you get to feeling more like your old self. The drug will take several more weeks before it works itself to a theraputic level. Again, welcome and have a great day,pledge
