So, I recently been put on an Anti-Depressant called Viibryd and it's bumming me out. It's only been a little over a week but so far besides making me a little nausea and even more depressed it hasn't done much.My family keeps insisting it's helping, but they're not taking into consideration that I'm less stressed because a bunch of things have changed in my life. And things aren't as bad.But in general, it was prescribed for an anti-anxiety, and it's not doing it's job, if anything it's made my anxiety worse.Also I keep reading all these side effects people get from it for being on it long term and I dunno.And I just recently start drinking, and it's been chill, I know it's no good for your body, but it actually did help me relax.But I know you're not supposed to drink if you're on anti-depressants, but I can't find out what the side effects are if I do.Like. Is it ok to drink a little bit with my fiance sometimes? If I do, do I need to skip a day? I don't know.Also, I went to a doctor finally and tried to explain the fact I have to urinate like 15-20x a day, and they didn't really even try to look into it. It's kind of upsetting, I dunno what to do really.
Viibryd and other issues.
One week isn't long enough for most antidepressants to show much effect. Vilazodone (Viibryd) is supposed to be quicker than most in its action, but I still would give it six weeks to get the full effect. However, your family may well be noticing a difference you don't see. That's quite common, that people close to us notice differences we can't see ourselves.Antidepressants are all right with alcohol in moderation - you don't have to stop drinking, just don't drink too much. Certainly don't skip a day.Anxiety can cause frequent urination, so perhaps the doctor thought that was the cause. If it keeps up, though, I would see another doctor.
This is day 29 of my medicine. So far, it still hasn't seem to improve anything, sad days.On the plus side, I went on a 4 day drinking binge, yes I know bad me, But I can safely say the medicine didn't cause any issues with my drinking, I waited anywhere from 8-12 hours from taking my medicine before I drank and I was fine.None of my issues however have been fixed, sad days.
