Yes, a lot.: It is one of the newer SSRIs in the market and has been very effective for depression with anxiety. If your insurance does not cover it and it is helpful, you could get a prior authorization. The company that makes Viibryd (vilazodone hydrochloride) also has a month trial offer for free , so you could try it before you get your insurance to pay for it.
