From this study (1 day ago):
I am in my 40s and I work in college admissions. Ive never experienced migraines before and have been otherwise healthy. I fell hitting my head and was prescribed this medicine. Using this med had me in the hospital twice, I have severe hair loss, and what the er Dr says is syncope that makes me pass out. The Dr wants to try something new but look at me, in a profession where you're always in the public eye, almost bald and still suffering migraines.This is life altering but is being treated as , just one of those things...its depressing

Hi I'm male, 24, of Sri Lankan origin but born and raised in the United Kingdom, I'm adding these details as it was requested when attempting to reply to you.
My question is was this on Modafinil/Provigil/Nuvigil and if so which one please?

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.
