OVERDOSE

There is limited clinical trial experience regarding human overdose with VIIBRYD. The adverse reactions associated with overdose of VIIBRYD at doses of 200-280 mg (5 to 7 times the recommended dosage) as observed in clinical trials included serotonin syndrome, lethargy, restlessness, hallucinations, and disorientation.

For current information on the management of poisoning or overdose, contact a poison control center at 1-800-222-1222.

No specific antidotes for vilazodone are known. Removal of vilazodone by dialysis has not been studied; however, the high volume of distribution of vilazodone suggests that dialysis will not be effective in reducing vilazodone plasma concentrations.

CONTRAINDICATIONS

VIIBRYD is contraindicated in:

  • Patients taking, or within 14 days of stopping, monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs), including MAOIs such as linezolid or intravenous methylene blue, because of an increased risk of serotonin syndrome [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS, DRUG INTERACTIONS].
This monograph has been modified to include the generic and brand name in many instances.
