Lithium for Depression
450 mg @ night and 300 mg in the morning
Vilazodone usually attains maximum response by 8 weeks according to clinical experience and most of the studies.
from what point since i just increased it to 40 mg recently?
As it is seretonin reuptake inhibitor unlike benzodiazepine it doesn't have tolerance.That means its effects would be longer term
No.Most of the experience is from the start of the drug
will my anxiety continue to improve as i just started feeling better a few days ago?
However it is important for you to be cautious about any significant life stressors and during those periods be bit cautious
Yes.The evidence is for low mood and anxiety.As the low mood improves anxiety gets better
You might be aware by now but i just wanted to tell you please inform pharmacists and doctors about your Lithium if you see them for any other condition or reason if the medication is prescribed
I hope you find this answer helpful.
I took other SSRI for depression and anxiety but the during the last few months had significant sexual side effects which i dont get with Viibryd.

ok. Thanks why do i have to be careful about Lithium and Viibryd?
if you find my answers so far helpful please Accept the answer and leave feedback if possible.Thank you.Goodluck
Nothing about Lithium and Viibryd
About Lithium only as it has some interactions with other medication.
So prior to prescribing any medication the doctors shouls know that you are on Lithium
