> Scott, I do have bipolar 1. I am on a mood stabilizer, tegretol. I always have the racing thoughts but they are more pronounced with the viibryd.
Sorry I missed your post to me...
It is difficult to know if your racing thoughts as you describe them are due to anxiety or are an indicator of a manic reaction.
> Do you think eventually for you viibryd will have an anti anxiety value?
I guess it is possible. The anxiety produced by Viibryd has disappeared. I am less than 4 weeks into treatment. Since anxiety is not (no longer) a part of my illness, I can't really answer your question.
How are you sleeping?
Some see things as they are and ask why.
I dream of things that never were and ask why not.
