> I went to an antique car show with a friend today and took pictures. It was nice to feel well enough to WANT to go somewhere and be around people. The Viibryd is still helping, and I am feeling better than I did on Nardil. I expect to feel very well in a few months. Today represents day 6 of treatment. I have sustained an improvement beyond my usual transient 3-day response pattern. This is very significant. I believe it is an indicator of my being able to achieve remission. Remission is the goal, of course, but I would be grateful for anything above a 50% improvement. I think I can work with that.

Oh wow. I am really glad for you, and I hereby wish to all relevant deities that the torturous "blip" responses you've gotten are finally over.
I'll be keeping an eye on your progress (I would anyway); I have heard a lot of good about this one... on other boards, as well.
Scott, has low energy or concentration ever been symptoms for you? I know it's early, but how is treatment affecting these symptoms (if you have them).
You know, if Viibryd is as good for old-fashioned MDD as it may be for TRD, Forest could have a blockbuster on its hands. I think the reason we haven't seen much press is because major marketing hasn't started.
(Anyone want to predict the animations they use in the commercials this time?)
I digress. The fact that you are enjoying something that you SHOULD enjoy rather than dragging yourself along and not "feeling" it (boy do I know what that's like) is pretty damned good news.
