Viibryd (vilazodone) is prescribed to treat depression. Depression is a long-term mood disorder related to the amount of neurotransmitters (chemicals that allow nerves to communicate) in the brain. Viibryd is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI). It works by regulating how much of the neurotransmitter serotonin is present in the brain.
There is currently no generic available for Viibryd. Patients without insurance can expect to pay as much as $300 for a 30-day supply of Viibryd. Even patients with insurance have co-pays. Because depression medications are quite specific to patients’ disorders and depression is often a long term diagnosis, these costs can really add up over time.
