I'm a veteran of most ssri's. I usually tolerate very well. Just transitioning from celexa to viibryd. After several days will be increasing dose to 40'mgs over several weeks. Now at 20 mg and the nausea is horrible, pretty much all day feeling really queezy really pukey. How long should I hang in with this? How long for some sort of tolerance to build for this? Nausea is awful. Please advise.

HELP!!!
Dear Classic, Hello and Welcome to our Forum. Viibryd is an amazing medication. Here's the key-you MUST take it with food, not just milk, preferably at least a light meal. For nausea, my Doc initially had me taking it at night. We then switched to a morning dose when the nausea had dissipated. I seem to recall it was worst with every dose up. I STILL keep a lil pack of crackers with me some mornings though. Hang in there. it WILL resolve and you'll be feeling so much better. Keep us posted. Good luck.

Hi Classicstyle. It's been said before, but I'm going to give it a try. I take it with a sandwich or bananas, something that the med has to grab on to. Liquid doesn't help. I take lamictal, and if I don't take it with something solid, I get sick too.

Have you tried Ginger? As long as the herb itself does not interact with your medication, I recommend it. I had a medication that really bothered my stomach as well and my MD at the time told me to try that and it really helped me. You can find ground Ginger capsules at most drugstores in the vitamin/herb section. As with adding anything to your regimen, check interactions first- this site had an area where you can do that. Best wishes!
