Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Hi! You know, to give you the best answer, I think I should ask you a few questions first that will help define the problem and the situation.
The first question is about Viibryd. It is an SSRI but it's new, relatively. Has it been prescribed for you in the past?
Secondly, Abilify is prescribed most frequently for mood disorders like Bipolar Disorder. Is that a possibility here in your situation rather than just depression?
Another question in depression that's hard to relieve is trauma: Was there trauma or abuse in your childhood? What about alcohol or dysfunction in your family when you were growing up?
Are you getting any treatment right now? If so, what type? How is it going?
If not, when was the last treatment? What type of treatment was it? Was it helpful?
Any extra information that will help, feel free to share.
I see you are offline at this time and I may be logged off until later tonight (US time) before you reply, but go ahead and reply to these questions and I’ll answer as soon as I log on again. Okay?
I've heard of Vybrid, but just didn't feel like dealing with another ssri. As far as I know I am not bipolar, the abilify was added on a few years ago because my paxil stopped working. I am currently seeing a psychiatrist occasionally, no psychotherapy currently, though I've have had psychotherapy in my 20's.
