Viibryd Withdrawal and Tapering Help

Viibryd is an SSRI that activates the 5-HT1A receptor, with increased impulsivity, impairment of cognition, learning and memory as just a few side effects. Our NonProfit has been helping people withdraw safely from Antidepressants for over 14 Years. Contact  the Prescription Drug Experts for help!

Viibryd, also known as Vilazodone is an Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor (SSRI) antidepressant that exerts its mechanism of action on Serotonin.

Viibryd should not be combined with MAO Inhibitors, Tramadol, Tryptophan, 5HTP or any supplements that increase Serotonin, or with antipsychotic medications. In addition, the use of Viibryd in combination with other Central Nervous System drugs has not been systematically evaluated. Therefore it is recommended to use caution when combining Viibryd with other agents.

Withdrawal symptoms, known as a Discontinuation Syndrome have been reported with Viibryd. A gradual dose reduction is recommended rather than abrupt discontinuation. Contact Us if you need help tapering Viibryd or have questions.

Viibryd history and info

Viibryd received FDA approval in January 2011 after Trovis Pharmaceuticals completed two Phase III eight-week clinical trials.

Viibryd may cause low blood sodium (hyponatremia), with symptoms including headache, confusion, problems concentrating, memory problems, weakness and unsteadiness. The elderly and patients taking diuretics are more at risk for hyponatremia. 

Combining Viibryd with NSAIDs, aspirin, warfarin or other drugs that effect blood coagulation can cause an increased risk of abnormal bleeding. 

Viibryd is considered a pregnancy Category C medication, meaning that it may not be safe for use during pregnancy. It is unknown if Viibryd passes through breast milk.

Withdrawal symptoms, known as a Discontinuation Syndrome have been reported with Viibryd. A gradual dose reduction is recommended rather than abrupt discontinuation. Withdrawal symptoms may include anxiety, irritability, insomnia, diarrhea, tremors, headaches, dizziness and nausea.
