  1. Anyone find Zoloft more motivating than Effexor? Any weight gain? (it made me insomniac with psychosis 20 years ago). But meds often act differently over time. I've already done trials (some multiple times) of: Prozac (lethargic), Celexa (fatigue/apathy), Lexapro (similar to prozac), Cymbalta (vigilance/restlessness legs, but dissociative mind/feeling), Wellbutrin (no effect), Trintillex (no effect), Remeron (sedating/+appetite), Notryptaline (don't recall), Abilify (++appetite, RLS), ..Doc won't RX MAOIs and says that TCAs typically more sedating effects. Basically, I don't want to
  2. I already had IBS prior to this med...but needed to try it, as nothing else was working. My fears came true, stomach got even worse, and I mean bad! I bought peppermint pills last week when I read “IBSgaurd” was supposed to be really helpful. I couldn’t afford name brand, so bought what I thought was the same ingredient, but generic. Unless IBSgaurd was going to do this as well, as an adverse reaction which I’m quite used to...or this generic isn’t the same thing. It has tripled my issues. All of them. Causes extreme heartburn, intractable diarrhea, massive spasming...the onl
  3. It was helping some until today. My appetite was out of control today! Maybe it’s hormones as I (no uterus but...) am having achy breasts and headaches so just maybe it’s that. Maybe today was a one off. I’m a recovered ED mess. Used to be solely restricting though. Now I’m scared to death. I mean really scared I am not depressed right now, which is a miracle. So ditching Viibryd doesn’t feel like an option. I’ve no idea what to do. My new insurance as of October covers a gym membership, but my anxiety in that situation! I don’t even know why I’m
  4. Hi all. Would like opinions please. I've been on Viibryd for a little over 6 weeks. Went up to 40mgs, then back to 30mg now 20mgs (pdoc thought it might have been too stimulating for me at higher doses). I'm starting to feel stable throughout the day most days, but almost always have breakthrough anxiety multiple times a day, in which the .50mg of Lorazepam isn't working to control. Although my depressed mood/sadness has seemed to lifted a bit, the suicidal thoughts are hanging on for dear life. This promoted my pdoc to add Lithium 900mg a little over 2 weeks ago. I also take 200mg Seroquel a
  5. Hello there, So I'm going to see my psychiatrist on Thursday to get screened for Bipolar disorder. My hypomania isn't that bad in my opinion (especially when compared to the depths of my depression), but my psychiatrist may still want to put me on a mood stabilizer all the same. I'm scared that she may also try to take me off of Viibryd while she's at it and I'm just unsure of what to expect. I've taken 5mg of Viibryd daily since the Summer of last year (I think), to help give me energy during my depressive states and my questions are: 1) Does anyone else know what it's like to come
  6. Hello, I recently switched to Viibryd about 3 weeks ago. I had been on 20mg of lexapro and 300mg of Wellbutrin XL. I’m currently keeping my Wellbutrin the same and tapered up to 40mg of Viibryd using the starter pack while stepping down my Lexapro dose with each Viibryd mg increase. So now I’ve been on 40mg Viibryd for a week and off Lexapro for a week. Historywise, I think I’ve taken just about every SSRI at some point since high school and I’m now 30. I was able to semi-successfully come off all psych meds for a few months before a planned pregnancy (had been on Wellbutrin only just bef
  7. Hello, I just increased my Viibryd dosage from 20 to 40 mg. My anxiety has increased and I'm having panic attacks; the latter hasn't happened in a while. My PRN Diazepam is not helping (I just feel sleepy/spacey & panicked). I'm excessively jumpy & overall freaked out. I just checked my HR & BP and they're normal, although it seems like my heart is beating a zillion bpm. Has anyone else experienced this? I'm not seeing much on the web about this- mainly info about disturbed sleep & nausea. I'm hoping this will dissipate and am calling my pdoc tomorrow. Thinking the increases ma
  8. I've been taking Viibryd now for many months and was just prescribed Abilify as an add on. My heart is racing, my hands are shaking, I feel light headed and jittery and generally like anxiety is taking over me. Is this normal? Does it eventually subside? Thanks for the input -Mary
  9. Hi! I am new to this site but not new to depression and anxiety. Been living with this for 20 years and am now 43. Was on Prozac for a very long time. Did great for 10 years then it quit. Tried Lexapro, made me crazi(er), went back to Prozac out of fear of trying another drug. Xanax throughout. After a bad couple of years I ended up in the hospital and am now on Viibryd. Never heard of it til then. Six months later and strange side effects I think I am doing better. Searching the internet for other Viibrd users. There's a lot of scary stuff out there on it. Hoping to find some possitives. My e
  10. quick intro- 18 years old & have been in and out of therapy since the age of about 12. I don't remember ever being happy as a kid, but that's when depression started interrupting my ability to function daily. Since then, I've had 4 therapists, 3 psychiatrists, and tried prozac (6 months), lexapro (1.5 years) , wellbutrin (with the lexapro), & viibryd (6 weeks). The former two made me feel lethargic and groggy, while the latter two had no effect on my mood, though viibryd made me extremely nauseous. Also since then, I've moved schools three times and moved between living with each
  11. I only took one dose today and feel exhausted and just not very focused. I read the sheet and the common side effects are terrible. Not to mention this one causes withdrawal I was put on a new antidepressant bc I've been on so many before and can't recall anything helping long-term. My diagnosis is bipolar but honestly I think I am more borderline. I know a mood stabilize would be ideal for either or but the depression just isn't going away. So my question is what has your experience been on this med? I forgot to add that I do drink alcohol sometimes
  12. I'm looking for some advice. I've had a lot of experience with different antidepressants, and almost no success. I'm getting pretty tired of the whole trial-and-error process, and I'm not terribly confident in my doc's ability to prescribe the right thing, especially considering some special circumstances. Here's my history. I have been diagnosed with social anxiety and dysthymia. I've had both as long as I can remember. My first experience with taking antidepressants was Paxil when I was 16. This actually seemed to work well, cleared the anxiety and depression right up. I eventually tapere
