Can Viibryd interact with other medications or foods?

Some drugs may not mix well with Viibryd (vilazodone), so to avoid interactions give your doctor a list of every medication you take, including prescription and over-the-counter drugs, herbal remedies and supplements. Especially important are:
  • other antidepressants
  • anti-anxiety drugs
  • triptans (Imitrex)
  • antibiotics
  • antifungals
  • HIV medications
  • pain medications, such as tramadol (Ultram) and meperidine (Demerol)
  • St John's wort
  • nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS), such as aspirin and ibuprofen (Motrin)
  • blood thinners, such as warfarin (Coumadin)
  • anti-seizure medications such as mephenytoin (Mesantoin)
  • diuretics
  • blood pressure medications, such as verapamil (Calan) or Diltiazem (Cardizem)
  • Monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAO inhibitors), such as phenelzine (Nardil), tranylcypromine (Parnate), isocarboxazid (Marplan), and selegiline (Eldepryl, Emsam, Zelapar).
Grapefruit increases the potency of some antidepressants, so avoiding eating it or drinking the juice while taking Viibryd.
