I am a new user of Viibryd and getting ready to step up to 40 mg in 2 days. I have taken other antidepressants for several years with generally good results other than eventually they become less effective. So far my side effects have been manageable. But for the last two days I've been so sleepy during the day that I can barely function. Most people seem to think that it should be taken in the morning. Has drowsiness decreased for anyone else after the initial adjustment period? Or have you been successful taking it at bedtime?
I am very sorry that you did not receive a timely answer from someone in our group. That is unusual. I have been traveling to Europe and a bit jet lagged over the past few days.
I initially had a similar, annoying sleep pattern with Viibryd. My MD added a small dosed of Clonazepam which has been helpful. I was determined to ride out the Viibryd side effects because I was really pleased with how it was working for me. I too switched after several years on another anti-D that ceased to be effective. I always take my 40 dose in the AM, with food. It sounds like for you, the worst of the side effects are behind you. I wish you good luck on your journey. Being farther down the Viibryd path, I'd be happy to chat if you'd like write again one day or PM me. Apologies that you were left for so long without a reply.
