I started viibryd yesterday , last night and today I'm experiencing a panic attack , tonight worse than last night, is this something anyone's experienced and does it go away? I've been on so much for anxiety and depression I'm running out of options. I've tried effoxor, cymbalta, celexa, lexapro, Zoloft , Prozac , Wellbutrin ,and plenty I can't recall
Hi! I have only had one panic attack and that's when I bumped up to 40 mg. I went back to 20 mg and I'm doing great. This is my second month on Viibryd and so far, so good.
Did you start on the 10 mg?
I was on Zoloft for years and it took me over a year to figure out it wasn't working anymore. Viibryd has been great for me so far and I'm staying optimistic. :-)
It takes Viibryd 6-8 weeks to become completely effective. You may feel no effects at all in 3 days. My protocol for starting was 10 mg for two weeks, then 20 mg for several months until the doctor saw that my symptoms demanded that I need 40 mg. This made side effect transition easier. He was cautious and it made me feel safer. I needed to feel safer.
Everyone is different, but take your time, you will get there.

I have had two panic attacks since beginning Viibryd about a month ago. Has anyone else experienced?
