The human brain is a most complication machine that science & medicine are just starting to understand. If this drug will be effective on you some reaction/results might be seen between 3 weeks and 8 weeks. If this Rx is not effective there are others. Your struggle is understood; keep up the fight.
"Viibryd works best if you take it with food. It may take several weeks or months before your symptoms improve. Keep using the medication as directed and tell your doctor if your symptoms do not improve, or if they get worse. Do not stop using Viibryd suddenly, or you could have unpleasant withdrawal symptoms. Ask your doctor how to avoid withdrawal symptoms when you stop using Viibryd."
After reading the potential side effects, I suggest you take it in the mornings, as 1 of the most common possible side effect is insomnia.
I suggest you discuss this further with your Dr.
Welcome. I'm sure you're excited but a bit apprehensive about commencing Viibryd. I'm really astonished that your Dr did not give you guidance as to when to take this med. I am a long term Viibryd user, not a medical professional. For several reasons and to avoid some unpleasant side effects, I found it was most effective for me to take this med in the AM, always with food, not just milk. It has been life changing for me and many other users. Please report back. Good luck
