dificulties with sleep will follow however... and the literature indicates that possibility. Trazadone has been suggested as a possible remedy. Are the two drugs compatible? Thanks, Glenn Larkin
I don't think its safe to take together. There is something call serotonin syndrome. Its where your body us getting to serotonin. ( plz excuse the spelling) Anyway you could have seizures hallucinations extreme drowsiness etc. Oh there's so many effects from taking both. I can't figure out how to post a website to you so you can see all the information. Google it or research it here on drugs.com search under viibryd and Trazadone interactions.
Interactions between your selected drugs
trazodone ↔ vilazodone
Applies to: trazodone, Viibryd (vilazodone)
Using traZODone together with vilazodone can increase the risk of a rare but serious condition called the serotonin syndrome, which may include symptoms such as confusion, hallucination, seizure, extreme changes in blood pressure, increased heart rate, fever, excessive sweating, shivering or shaking, blurred vision, muscle spasm or stiffness, tremor, incoordination, stomach cramp, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Severe cases may result in coma and even death. You should seek immediate medical attention if you experience these symptoms while taking the medications. Talk to your doctor if you have any questions or concerns. Your doctor may already be aware of the risks, but has determined that this is the best course of treatment for you and has taken appropriate precautions and is monitoring you closely for any potential complications. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to your doctor.
