So i've been reading some reviews on this medication. And some of the side effects are scaring me. I was diagnosed with severe depression at the age of 15, i am now 23 and ive tried a lot of different stuff. My doctor just gave me the trial pack of Viibryd and i looked a little into it and there is some mixed reviews on it. Should i be worried?
Hi discodani! Welcome to our forum.
Yes, there are mixed reviews on Viibryd. Every antidepressant is not necessarily right for all persons.
Please advise what your specific question is with regard to the side effects. I've experienced many of them over the past 11 months on this med. it is a unique drug and for me has been life-changing. I will assure you that the side effects do diminish and disappear. I'm really happy that I stuck with Viibryd. For me, it has clearly been worth it!
Hope to hear back from you. You'll have support on this journey. Feel free to send me a Private Message if you prefer.

It's always worth a try. Not everybody gets the side effects as severe or at all. It helped me for over a year when nothing else helped but the side effects got to be too much on me and then it stopped working. I don't regret taking it as it did help at one point and I was able to live a pretty normal life for awhile while on it. Never not try something because you've heard bad things about it. Everyone responds to meds in different ways. Give it a try and see how it goes. Best of luck to you!
Thanks for the responses guys! So far I'm on my second day. The first night of taking it I had horrible GI problems. I couldn't even go to work. But just last night I had no issues. The one side effect I'm really worried about is the very strange nightmares people are taking about. But so far so good.
Hi discodani... I'm new here and afraid I cannot offer any advice on Viibryd however as someone else here said each person reacts differently to different drugs I believe. Prozac and Zoloft gave me some nasty side effects while Effexor gave me some,it was generally well tolerated by my system... be well and good luck!!
