Customer Question
I just got out...

I just got out of the hospital for severe anemia and the only medication that I started in the last two months was viibryd and I and I am concerned that Viibryd might be the culprit?

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

Daltin and lamictal

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No. They asked me if I had anemia before and I did years ago but every thing started changing after the I started the Viibryd

Dear customer,

Thank you for the question.

You can rest assured that Viibryd is not the cause of your anemia. This medication is used safely by millions of individuals and there has not been even a single case of anemia reported with the use of this medication. Therefore your doctor should do further investigations such as iron studies or Vitamin B12 level to know the cause of the anemia. In most cases, the cause is harmless and can be corrected with medications and supplements.

Take care.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
