The drug is called viibryd. They claim is rare that sexual side effects happens with this one, AND its a SSRI!

What is your input on this?

I just googled it - yes, some don't report loss of sexual desire, but not everybody. i guess it depends on the individual. But the chances are higher that you keep your sex drive as on many others, so I guess that's worth giving it a shot

I've tried Viibryd. It causes really foul flatulence. After 1 week, I ditched it. I'd rather be depressed than smell like #@!!

Do the side effects ever lift? Or they just always smell?

I didn't endure it beyond the first week, so I don't know if it would have subsided. I can't bear the irony of medications that are supposed to make us feel better, making us feel worse!

No more meds for me. I let the doctors prescribe all they want, but I won't take pills anymore. The side effects suck.

Exercise. Healthy food. Sunshine. Those are the best treatments for me. And they work!

Having no energy all the time? Did you ever experience this? Like I got all my blood test and everything came back normal

Having no energy all the time can be a symptom of many things including depression and fibromyalgia (there are no tests available for that illness...it's always a subjective diagnosis). Low energy levels can also come from poor nutrition. You say your blood test came back normal, so I'm not mentioning anemia, you apparently don't have that.

Yes I do get low energy levels. I blame it on the depression.

Exercise is my best treatment for the depression...believe me it's quite an internal battle to get going, but if and when I get myself going, I do feel much better.

Did the antidepressants make you feel more energized?
