Zoloft and viibryd

  1. The DON at my ALF received an order to DC Zoloft 50mg and start Viibryd 10 mg for 7 days and increase to 20mg daily.
    When I saw the order I called the pharmacy to verify if I should take the Zoloft out of her mediset. She said yes remove the Zoloft since she will be on the Viibryd. The PCP did not taper the Zoloft.
    Just thinking about the withdrawal symptoms of Zoloft?
    Would you call the MD over the weekend to ask about tapering the zoloft? Pharmacist did not question the orders?
