At one point several months after I was diagnosed with PD, since I refused to go on PD meds, my doctor suggested Viibryd, an anti-depressant. I was definitely depressed, having been diagnosed with an incurable progressive disease and losing my soul mate to suicide 7 months prior. After a few weeks, I discontinued the Viibyrd as I was having vivid nightmares.
Is your doctor treating you with depression meds before prescribing PD meds?
