  1. Is Viibryd stronger then Trintellix? I need something strong with minimal Sexual side effects and up lifting. Trying to figure out what makes me tired also Trintellix, abilify or Gabapentin. I take Trintellix 20mg each morning, Gabapentin 600mg and abilify 2mg at bed time. 🤷🏻‍♂️
  2. Is there a reason that you stopped taking Viibryd? Did it give you any energy? On Trintellix I’m tired all the time.
  3. Anyone taking Viibryd especially males? Looking to switch from Trintellix as its not working well. Also trying to stay away from any male sexual side effects.
  4. So it’s been 6 weeks on Trintellix with no signs of relief. The Dr. started me on 20 mgs. It was a rough 2 weeks of stomach issues and feeling dizzy, still getting a little dizzy and stomach issues ,but not as bad. I’m At the 6 weeks today and the only thing I notice is that I’m tired, short tempered, hungry and don’t feel like doing anything. I know with everything going on in the world some of it should be expected, but I feel as if I’m not getting any better. Should I give it a couple more weeks and see what happens?
  5. Update:: lamictal has not done anything at 350mg. I’m tapering off it now and going To Trintellix if I have any sexual side effects they will add bupropion at a low dosage I’ve taken it before and it caused a rash at 300mg but didn’t at low dosage I think It was 75mg with no side effects.
  6. Holy crap lol that’s a lot of input. California rocket fuel = venlaflaxtine and mirtazapine. I’ll look at the rest when I can concentrate. I have a commercial driver license and any thing that’s a stimulant would make my license revoked. I’m going to give lamictal and gabapentin a little longer to see what happens. I see the dr in 3 weeks and get her opinion. Thanks for all the information!!
  7. I think I might try viibryd, mitzazapine or rameron. Do these have sexual side effects? I’ve also tried California rocket fuel???
  8. Depressed mood, anxiety, irritability, loss of happiness, loss of interest and decreased self confidence. I have taken a MAOI I don’t remember the name it was a couple years ago. I get a allergic reaction to Wellbutrin so that’s out. I’ve taken many snri’s , but never with Remeron. I can’t take any adhd meds because I get drug tested at work. Yes the only one I can remember is aripipazole.
  9. Sad= nervous and worry all time mad= just always in a bad mood even though I have no problems with money,wife or kids. ☹️
  10. I’m on lamictal 325 and gabapentin 300mg in the morning and 600 of gabapentin at bedtime. Two many to list the last one I was on was viibryd but that made me nauseous although I only took it for 4 days. Two many to list
  11. 14 weeks. Just started 325 Thursday and hopefully it will start to work soon. Hoping to stay at 325mg
  12. I’m taking it for bipolar/depression. I’ve been on pretty much every antidepressant The only one that worked was Effexor at 250mg, but caused sexual side effects. I’m now seeing a new Dr. who thinks I have bipolar depression and I’m now up to 325mg of lamictal and it seems to not be working the only thing it’s doing is making me forget things?
  13. Anyone taking lamictal for depression, if so does it work, how long before it works and how much do you take
  14. I’m no longer on Prozac. I found a new Dr and she has me on Lamictal, so far so good!!
  15. Yes still stricken with anxiety. He said the recommended dose is 50mg daily. I f I take the 50 after about a week or so I get really bad anxiety and have to take almost 8mg of Ativan to feel ok.
  16. Well I’ve been on PRISTIQ for almost 3 months at 25 mg with no change, still feeling like crap in morning panicked, doom and gloom and for some reason I feel guilty 🤷🏻‍♂️ I tried 50mg for about a week and it made me feel worse. Should I just try to stick it out with 50mg or switch to viibryd? That and Paxil are the only ones I haven’t tried??
  17. I tried buspar with no luck. The dr put me on 25mg of pristiq today. Hopefully it will work just as good as Effexor, without the side effects.
  18. One week later at 20mg and no better? Still have a lot of anxiety in the morning. I’m 5 weeks in should I hold out a little longer And see if it gets better or should I just ask for a different medication?
  19. Day 2 of 20mg and it seems like the anxiety has lifted a little bit but not much. I’m going to stay at this dose for another week and see what happens. Thanks for all the input.
  20. @juniper29 good to know. Most of them made me very irritable. Some did nothing others made me just not feel right (detached) Allergic reaction to Wellbutrin. Effexor worked the best at 150mg but that caused bedroom problems.
  21. I thought he was going a little fast. I’ve been thinking about a second opinion. Maybe even more now than ever.
  22. Diagnosed with major depression. It's been a battle for about 3 years and nothing has worked so far, thats why he decided to go with prozac. We never discussed a target dose kinda flying blind he believes that the anxiety should go away with the increased dosage? i'm not buying it! i was thinking I should go back to 20mg and give that a chance? Sometimes i feel as if hes just throwing whatever at me and seeing how i react As of now im on 40mg prozac and 2mg of ativan twice a day
