When can I stop taking Viibryd?

You should stop taking Viibryd (vilazodone) only under your doctor's supervision. Stopping Viibryd suddenly may cause a relapse of your depression or withdrawal symptoms. These include:
  • sleep problems
  • anxiety
  • irritability
  • headache
  • sweating
  • nausea
  • dizziness
  • tremor
  • confusion
  • seizures
  • tingling or burning sensation in your hands and feet
When discontinuing Viibryd, your doctor will gradually taper your dosage to avoid these withdrawal symptoms and allow your body time to adjust.
