I'm a 31 yr old me I been on viibryd for about 3 weeks now and still really don't feel a difference I'm feeling down and tired all the time how long does this take to kick in??
It can take 4-6 weeks to reach peak effect.
4-6 weeks to reach full effect sounds about right, but if you began with the Starter Pak, as I did, the change may be so gradual you may not notice it at first. I can tell how well it's doing if I miss a couple of days then begin on 40mg again - the difference is like night & day! I wouldn't recommend skipping a dose, though. I'm a fairly big guy, but going back to 40mg after missing a couple days is quite a jolt! Give it some time, keep in touch with your doc, & good luck! The Viibryd is working great for me!
Welcome to the group. I totally agree with my friend AtticaBob. Hang in there and you should soon feel better as the dosage increases and your system adjusts. Continue to take this med in the AM with a meal, not just milk, and don't be careless about dosage times. Please keep us posted how you're doing. For me, Viibryd was life changing.
