Soon: The first question is if your symptoms are truly related to the medication. After 6 days your symptoms should already be starting to improve. If it is related to the medicine, and your symptoms haven't improved yet, they should soon.. The medicine typically doesn't last very long. Good luck, feel better. ...Read more

Viibryd (vilazodone hydrochloride): Fairly new antidepressant made by forest labs, same company that made Celexa & lexapro. I note similar results on low dose of viibryd (vilazodone hydrochloride). Talk to your doctor about dose or switch, due to lack of response, assuming you tried viibryd (vilazodone hydrochloride) long enough. ...Read more

In general, about how long after i start metoprolol tart before the ses decrease?  I've had insomnia, fatigue after workout, slight nausea/depression

Give it several week: Give it several weeks before the symptoms die down. Blood levels of the drug can vary greatly from individual to individual due to differences in how individuals liver processes the medication. In the event that the depression continues, i would recommend you talk to your family doctor about switching to a different medication. Never stop this medication suddenly you can experience rebound hypertension. ...Read more
