Viibryd’s Pros and Cons
- Viibryd is especially good for people with suicidal ideation, or who are at risk for suicide.
- Takes a long time to work.
- Which isn’t a great property for a med that you want to use when you’re feeling suicidal!
Interesting Stuff your Doctor Probably didn’t Tell You about Viibryd
From the PI sheet: ‘’Absorption is decreased by approximately 25% if vomiting
occurs within 7 hours of ingestion.’‘
The only reason that’s interesting is it’s the first time I’ve found the answer to the question, “What happens if I puke after taking my meds?” Viibryd is turning out to be pretty boring.
Vybrid - note the spelling difference - is the name of a microprocessor used in industrial machinery (assembly-line robots e.g.) and a line of shoes with the “five-finger” design. Like gloves for your feet. As a common misspelling for Viibryd I’m sure both companies are pleased to no end that crazies conflate their products with a crazy med.
