From this study (2 days ago):
Is prozac causing my urinary incontenance
From this study (6 days ago):
I know the usual maximum dose of Viibryd is 40 mg. I am taking 60 mg of Viibryd as 40 mg. did not do the job.
Could this cause an increase in my blood pressure to 150's/110's?
Also, I was on Losartan but was taken off as my blood pressure was sometimes as low as 105/75. I was not on the higher dose of viibryd when I had those very low blood pressures. I was taking 40 mg. at that time.
