I can’t remember if I mentioned the genetic testing but that was why she started mentioning Pristiq then Viibryd due to them being on the list of what I should be compatible with.
I am not sure why she chose Viibryd either as I don’t think she knows as much about how I don’t respond well to SSRIs generally, and as you said Zoloft is cheaper, I try not to think she has incentive to go with Viibryd but it has crossed my mind.
What is SMS class? Serotonin modulation ? I read about the incidences of diarrhea and couldn’t believe how high of a rate it was, didn’t like what I read from drugs.com from people who have taken it but not all reviews were bad and I have given it a chance.
I had my first day on it yesterday and it went fairly well with things had to go to the restroom a bit more than I normally would but other than that things were ok and it may have been just a good day or it is already working, not sure.
So far I am taking the 10 mg before going up to 20, I will see how well I tolerate it, do you get withdrawal symptoms if you don’t take it same time every day? That was one thing I read and didn’t want to deal with, I’m normally consistent but don’t really need the extra anxiety.
How does it make you feel? I am excited that it is a serotonin agonist and not just an SSRI, I have experience with serotonin agonists helping my mood in the past but many of those are illegal now and I have found they won’t work due to my paliperidone .
That is the final thing I want to know about, will it work even with an antipsychotic? I can’t see how things would work the same on antipsychotics.
Sorry for the lengthy reply, there isn’t much out there about this.
