Yes: I have patients doing well on 20 mg a day of viibryd (vilazodone hydrochloride). Tegretol does lower viibryd (vilazodone hydrochloride) blood levels. Hope this helps. Best wishes.

Viibryd: Carbamazepine may reduce the blood levels & effectiveness of vilazodone. I know of psychiatrists whose patients have responded well to 20 mg of Viibryd.
