Viibryd has been a definite weight gainer for me. Big time. I am very disappointed. Also, it took 4 weeks or so for me to feel any AD benefit at all. I'm huge and bloated and even more depressed. If a med causes two weeks of constant diarrhea - that might be the first sign that its not ready for the consumer. I look at it as a toxic drug. It has also caused extreme tendon rigidity in my legs which I have never had before. It made me do everything in slo mo. Frankly, I hate this drug and see no benefit. 8 weeks was not enough preliminary testing. And all drug companies lie about the weight gain. Not a single one says "will make you obese in a matter of two months almost guaranteed." I'm tapering off. I'm complaining to the company. This drug did major damage.
Yes, it will cause weight gain. I carry around about 70 extra pounds since I started taking Viibryd. I have just figured out that this is the reason I have ballooned and now feel so badly. The medicine worked amazingly for me and I have highly recommended it but since fixing every other part of my life (better nutrition, more exercise, everything!) I have finally questioned the Viibryd and realize it is the primary cause of my extreme weight gain.
