Hello! I just recently saw a psychiatrist for the first time and she recommended I take Viibryd and wean off of the Sertraline I have been on for years. I have been diagnosed with MDD and major anxiety. I am still in the first week of the 10 mg sample pack, but I have a ton of anxiety since starting it, more than I had before. Does this subdue after a while? I have also been prescribed some Xanax but I don't want to depend on that as a crutch. Are the long term benefits of Viibryd worth it? Also, it is INCREDIBLY expensive even after insurance so I am wrestling with that fact as well. Thank you for any info!
