Welcome to the forum.
I have never used Vilbyrd but have used similar medications in the same class of drugs and found them helpful.
It seems to be the norm to experience side effects when starting any medication but things usually settle after a couple of weeks. It also seems to be the norm that things get worse before they get better again and it can take up to 8 weeks before you start to see the full benefits so stick with it.
Keep us posted.
I try not to worry about the future -- so I take each day just one anxiety attack at a time.
