I myself am incontinent as was fine before using the ring. It's embarassing and quite painful. I tried to discuss this with my doctor but was ignored/told Nuva ring doesn't cause infections at all!! I have been searching for information on others who've had the same the same issues as myself. I've only beebn on it for about 3 mos and am only 35 years old. I don't understand why my ob is ignoring my crys for help. Now I feel helpless and in serious pain whenever I drink anything, I got to run to the bathroom or put towels on my bed. I eat well and exercise...I don't understand how one drug can do so much damage! :(

Is prozac causing my urinary incontenance
From this study (1 week 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.
