chipur Update: Viibryd is coming when???

“Okay, Forest Labs. You’re touting how great Viibryd is. So when are we going to see it? No more teasing!”

Nothing makes me angrier than holding hostage those who are suffering. And if you ask me, Forest Laboratories is doing just that.

When will Viibryd (vilazodone) be available?!

After fielding more email questions regarding Viibryd’s launch, I did some digging today. And guess what I found! Um, not much.

***I’ve decided to maintain an ongoing journal of chipur readers’ experiences with Viibryd. Click here and you’re there!

“Second Half of 2011?”

The best bit of info I could come up with was this blurb from a Forest Labs press release dated 2.22.11…

“…Forest plans to launch Viibryd in the U.S. during the second half of 2011. Viibryd is expected to retain market exclusivity until March 2020 including full patent term extension of its composition of matter patent and anticipated pediatric exclusivity. Other patents may further extend this period.”

I might also add I called two pharmacies and neither pharmacist knew a thing.

Keep Us Informed!

If you hear anything regarding Viibryd’s launch, please let me know in a comment or email. I’ll get the info on chipur…
