Hi guys! Has anyone tried the new FDA approved drug Vybrid for anxiety?? My doc is putting me on this in a few weeks after I wean off Paxil. It's a very new drug and it's mostly used for depression and I can't find too many reviews on it for people with panic and anxiety. Just curious if anyone has tried it.

Hi. I have been on viibryd for about six weeks. I think there are only a couple more here on it as I have started posts about it and most haven't heard of it.

I was in a bad depression and it almost immediately lifted it for the most part! I, too have anxiety and panic attacks. I was surprised when these got better too! I wasn't expecting that, but it was a very welcome surprise!

I just looked thru my journal. I haven't had a panic attack in a few weeks!!!!!! I still have some anxiety, but nothing like before!

I hope you find that it works for you! Anxiety/panic can be so awful and overwhelming!!! If you have any q's please pm me!

I've been taking Vybrid for about a month. I've had chronic depression for years and took Lexapro, but I was getting tired of the side effects -- weight gain, libido reduction. Aside from the equanimity it provided, the only other "fun" part of Lexapro were the wild dreams! I find Vybrid gives me nearly the same stress reduction/mood support I had on Lexapro but without the side effects (or, unfortunately, the dreams). The starter kit goes up to 40MG and that's where I'll stay for the time being.
