Viibryd Drug Interactions
Medications That Increase Bleeding Risk
Taking Viibryd with medications that affect bleeding can increase your risk of serious bleeding events. Talk to your healthcare provider before taking these medications together. Contact your healthcare provider if you develop any signs of bleeding while taking Viibryd, including:
- Stomach pains
- Black, tarry stools
- Vomit that looks like coffee grounds.
Also, you may need additional monitoring when you first start taking Viibryd or when you stop.
Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitors (MAOIs)
You should not take Viibryd and an MAOI within 14 days of each other. Taking these medications together can cause life-threatening side effects.
Combining Viibryd with paclitaxel may increase the level of paclitaxel in your body, potentially increasing your risk for side effects. Talk to your healthcare provider before taking these medications together.
Combining Viibryd with repaglinide may increase the level of repaglinide in your blood, potentially increasing your risk for side effects. Talk to your healthcare provider before taking these medications together.
SSRI or SNRI Antidepressants
Taking Viibryd with selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) or serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (SNRI) antidepressants can increase your risk for a rare but potentially dangerous reaction called serotonin syndrome. Talk to your healthcare provider before taking these depression medications together (see Viibryd Warnings and Precautions). Contact your healthcare provider right away if you have any symptoms of serotonin syndrome, including:
- Rapid heartbeat
- Feeling faint
- Muscle spasm or rigidity
- Difficulty walking
