I take Viibryd in the morning with no sleep problems, but that isn't to say it might not be bothering you. If you recently started Viibryd this may get better some, but if not discuss with the prescribing doctor.
I found if I take the Viibryd any sooner than 9 hrs before I go to bed I have difficult sleeping. Even 8 hrs before will leave me with my legs twitching when I'm trying to get to sleep. For someone who may have had a difficult time getting to sleep BEFORE taking Viibryd, the medication MAY make sleep very difficult. For me, I need to take it as early in the morning as I can so it doesn't interfere with my rest. If I forget to take it before, say, 3pm I'll skip the day's dose, and continue on the next day. I don't recommend this practice though, because then it causes other problems!
When I took it at night it caused vivid nightmares and sleep paralysis. My dr told me it had ingredients that give you energy and when I was taking it at night with sleep aids they were battling each other. I switched to mornings and it made all the difference in the world.
Common side effects of Viibryd include diarrhea and nausea. Other side effects include insomnia, dizziness, and abnormal dreams. See below for a comprehensive list of adverse effects (((First side effects listed just so you can see how common it is.))))
I take it in the morning with breakfast and I have CRAZY nightmares and unbelievable night sweats. I sweat so much I have to lay on a towel and change into a shirt twice in the night. Despite all this, the benefits outweigh the night sweats.
